A portrait of Shannon Jongema

“I came to Rollins’ Professional Advancement programs for a top-quality education at an unbeatable price, but I stayed for the relationships I built with my professors. The small class sizes at Rollins make it impossible to slip through the cracks when you are struggling and easy for you and your professors to get to know each other as people.”
