Student Spotlights

Heather Love, Evening Undergraduate Student at The CitadelName: Heather Love

Enrolled in: Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice

Received Associate's Degree from: Trident Technical College

Expected Date of Graduation: December 2012

Career Goal: To further my career with the City of Charleston Police Department becoming a law enforcement officer, hopefully leading to my career in a federal law enforcement agency.

"The Citadel has a great new Criminal Justice program that is taught in small classroom settings with a diverse staff of teachers who are always willing to work with the students; and they understand that most of the students hold full time jobs. The Citadel also has numerous resources with federal law enforcement agencies that other schools are not privileged to have. The college holds career fairs, allowing for all students to meet with different agencies of their choice. This gives The Citadel students an advantage that other graduates will not have."

What are some of the challenges you face in completing your degree: Time management is always tough due to the rigors of the electrical engineering (EE) curriculum. In addition to the difficulty associated with traditional EE courses, we must complete a senior design group project. This year I will be on a team of 5 EUGS students who will be representing The Citadel in the 2013 IEEE SoutheastCon Hardware competition.

What is your favorite part about being an EUGS student at The Citadel: Knowing that every day I show up for class, I am receiving a quality education and working towards a degree that will undoubtedly benefit my family and I in the future.

What advice would you give to a student just starting their undergraduate evening degree progrem: Study hard. It will pay off.

"The quality of the professors at The Citadel is unsurpassed and the class sizes are small enough that you have the opportunity to engage with and get to know your professors."
