Abigail loves the Communication Science Disorders department because every one of the professors is genuinely passionate about helping people and changing lives. According to Abigail, this is reflected in their attitudes, personalities, and overall dispositions.

"I honestly believe that all of the professors love what they do and want us to love it as much as they do, and to become the best speech pathologists we can be," Abigail says. To Abigail, that is what makes the speech pathology program unique. - Abigail Porter
