Wendy Riley drives three hours each day to attend the Physician Assistant Studies program at Gardner-Webb University, because she knows she’s receiving a quality education from caring professionals. “The Christ-centered focus has a welcoming feeling and my sense is that the faculty wants us to learn, and grow, and succeed — not because they want to check the box that says X percent of positions filled, X percent graduation rate, or X percent pass rate on the boards (although I know that is the goal),” she stated. “You don’t feel like a number here. You feel like a person who wants to go out into the world and make a difference in the lives of others. This program fosters that desire. I think that sets this program apart from others.”
