"Since graduating from Brevard College I have become a Solutions engineer for an Integration company" -Mike, Brevard College Graduate. Majored in Integrated Studies.
"I am thankful for the experiences I had at Brevard, many of which I would have been unable to have if I wold have gone to a larger institution. I was able to be the president of several clubs, work in a law office, and develop skills that I still apply to my daily life today" -Zack, Brevard College Graduate. Majored in Integrated Studies.
"So much of what I have learned at Brevard College was outside of the classroom as well. It is crucial that students understand that to find success at Brevard College means engaging with the campus community outside of the halls of MG, and taking advantage of this well connected small town we reside in." -Abigail, Brevard College Graduate. Majored in Integrated Studies.
