“Casper College was an excellent place to start my career. Through their committed instructors and alliance programs, I was able to stay in my home town of Casper and still get the education I needed to enter the public accounting field. The opportunities that the accounting department offers can and does open the doors to just about any field you can imagine. I was able to get my associates at Casper College as well as take the core classes I needed to transfer … to complete the upper level classes I needed … in order to sit for the CPA exam. Had it not been for opportunities that Casper College made available to me, including the experience of online courses, I likely would not be in the position I am in today.”
