Landmark College Grads Share Success Stories
I attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro before attending Landmark College.
I began having difficulties throughout my schooling but was able to work around them in the earlier grades. When I entered high school that was when I really began having difficulties. I was working very hard and putting time into my course work but not getting the results that I was hoping.
I was diagnosed with a mild learning disability in the areas of reading comprehension and ST/LT memory.
Landmark college gave me the tools and resources to help me learn the way I need to learn. Furthermore, the college enabled me to regain the confidence in myself that I had lost lost in high school. The students were very helpful. Many of the students were going through the same emotions/problems I had been going through. It was nice to know I wasn’t the only one. I made some very good friends while at Landmark.
I left Landmark after about 1 1/2 years. I applied to other 4 year colleges and universities. I attended Lehigh University in Bethlehem PA and received a Bachelors of Science in Finance. I have always had an interest in the finance so I interviewed with finance companies in the Boston area.
All my memories at Landmark were great. I would recommend Landmark College to prospective students. Landmark has given me the tools and resources to help me succeed in school and my career.
I do feel satisfied, but it is important to always keep striving and wanting more.
I plan to apply attend school full-time for my Master in Business Administration starting in September 2009. After graduation I would like to work in the fields of business consulting or venture capital/private equity.
I attended Landmark College for the Summer Skills Development Program the summer of 1989. At that time, I had completed my sophomore year at Wheaton College, Norton, Massachusetts. I returned to Wheaton following the summer program and graduated in 1991.
I was diagnosed with Dyslexia at the age of 5, much earlier than many I got to know at Landmark. My mother had noticed that I was having difficulties with letters and words and chose to have me evaluated. Although I had been tutored during my schooling up through high school, college was the first time that I didn’t have the designated support system in place. The summer at Landmark was the first time that I was in an environment with other students with similar difficulties. It was helpful learning what other students were doing to succeed in school. I found both the students and the faculty to be extremely helpful. I would recommend Landmark to other students.
Following my graduation from Wheaton College, I worked at Alpine Learning Group, a small school in NJ for children with Autism. I worked there for two years, and then went to the University of Pennsylvania, where I received a Master in Social Work degree in 1995.
I currently work as a Staff Therapist in the Asperger’s Related Services Department at West Bergen Mental Healthcare, a Community Mental Health Center in Northern NJ. My job is very satisfying to me and I plan to continue in the field, working with individuals with Autism Spectrum disorders and their families.#
