“While a senior in high school, I became a father at the age of 17. Growing up in Newark, New Jersey it was rough. I was able to complete high school while having my own apartment, working and taking care of my son. After high school graduation, I struggled to get a better paying job but was eventually blessed with two jobs to support my son. I always dreamed of being a police officer and after several tests, I was eventually hired at the age of 22. While raising my son who was failing his classes in the Newark school system, I was able to move to Bridgewater, New Jersey where my son excelled in their school system. Once my son entered his first year of college in fall of 2014, I decided to begin college myself at TESU In July of 2015. Through working long hours, putting my son and myself through college, I’m proud to say that this past May, my son graduated, and I completed my degree at TESU. So 2018 has been a great year for our family.” – Malik Rivers, BA ‘18

"In New Jersey alone, there were more than 10,000 openings for cybersecurity-related positions between April 2017 and March 2018. The number of qualified entrants into the cybersecurity workforce has not kept pace with demand, leaving a significant gap in the number of qualified personnel." - Dr. Amjad Ali, associate dean of the School of Applied Science and Technology https://tesu.social/2NpIphQ

“It took me seven years to complete my degree. Partially, it was due to being a requirement for work. However, as time went on, it became something that I felt driven to do and to complete. In the midst of obtaining my degree, I worked a couple of jobs. I also found out I had a brain tumor and had to have surgery. I had some issues following the surgery and could not complete my schoolwork for a year. Although it was still challenging, because when it's your brain, it’s still healing, but I did it and I'm here today. Obtaining my degree is a blessing I never thought I would receive. So today is a very very proud day for me.” - Carol Lee Mascola, BA ‘17
