What our students say

Samantha Dest


Samantha DestWhy did you choose Post University?

I went out of state my first year, and it didn’t work out, but I still wanted to get the experience of the college life. Post was close enough to home and I really liked the feel of the campus. A small campus was definitely for me.


Why did you major in Psychology?

I majored in psychology because my brother has some mental disabilities and I wanted to help others. For the past year and a half, I’ve been working as a mentor with children with autism. I go into their homes and help the family and help the kids work on community goals so they can be as independent and self-sufficient as possible in the home and in the community.


What was your experience at Post University like?

It was good. I made really good friends that I’ll keep forever. My interactions with the professors were really great. Dr. Corby was always involved and pushing us to do our best. She pushed me to be the best that I could be. You can’t go too far at Post without someone knowing your name and what you’re all about. Everybody’s really helpful.


Did you think Post is affordable and will provide a good return on your investment?

It’s more expensive than the state schools, but at state schools you feel like you’re just a number. Here professors know who you are. You’re not just a number that sends them a check.


In comparison to other schools where you applied, was Post more or less affordable?

Post was pretty equal to the other schools where I applied.


What have you liked best about attending Post University?

It’s just like a big family. The friends and teachers are people I won’t ever forget. You have such a big impact on each other. Family is really important to me and it’s nice to have an even bigger family. At a big school, you don’t feel that closeness that you feel at a small school.


What one thing about your education do you think will help you in grad school?

Writing was my biggest struggle when coming to Post and Dr. Corby was really intent on helping me. Our papers were research-based and now I really understand how it works, and this will definitely help me in grad school.


Would you recommend Post to your friends?

Yes, I would definitely recommend it to my friends. If you want to go to school and get the whole college experience and be where everyone knows you, then Post is the school for you. There are always options for people to get involved, too.
