The cohort model available at the Santa Rosa location was the reason I chose USF. The nine students in my cohort have developed a bond of support that will continue long after graduation. We support each other, challenge each other, wipe each other’s tears, and celebrate our successes together. It is an amazing journey we’ve chosen, and each of us is an important piece of its overall puzzle."
