WHY I CHOSE RIO
Lindsay T. AAS in Accounting
“I was a hard-working adult with children and years of work
experience, but no college degree. I decided to go back to school and get training in something I could do for a career. Earning my associate degree in accounting at Rio Salado was a great accomplishment. It’s exciting to know that within a few years, I could be doubling my family’s income.”
Michal R. AAS in Administration
“I took some classes through Rio Salado College for my job. I enjoyed it so much, and received many resources and encouragement from Rio staff that I decided to continue my education. Rio Salado made it possible for me to juggle all the challenges in my life and obtain an associate degree in Public Administration. I am looking forward to the new opportunities this has opened up to me in my career. ”
Cynthia S. AAS in Management
“I am so excited to have finished my Organizational Management degree. I was able to accomplish this while raising children and working 40-60 hours per week thanks to Rio Salado’s online courses. I chose Organizational Management because it gave me a very broad scope of management, leadership and the business industry. ”
