"I worked at the Sony plant for 15 years. When the plant closed, I decided to return to school. After attending Seton Hill, I've become more comfortable taking the lead in projects, and now have the confidence to reach and think outside of my comfort zone, which has already helped in my new career."

- William Griffiths (SHU '13), accounting major
