I am excited to connect with you and answer any questions you may have about Alliant and the programs here!

Favorite part of the program: The diverse student population and the opportunity to interact with and learn from them.

Advice to first year students: Plan your finances right as graduate school is an investment. And know that California is the only state where can reach the sunny sandy beaches and snow capped moutains in just two hours!
