College Courses at CMA

By: Casey Robinson on Apr 18, 2014 | Categories: General, Clubs

Thanks to CMA's Dual Enrollment I have completed four required freshman year basic courses with professors from USC Lancaster. The professors were always available via email as well as after class hours if I needed help grasping a new concept. The courses themselves were challenging, however, the credits to gain from the classes along with the future benefits have made it more then worth it. When I first began the classes I was afraid they would be too difficult for me, but the combination of USCL and CMA instructors helped me understand most, if not all, of the material.

Applying to colleges while attending CMA, thanks to the faculty advisers, was both quick and easy. The advisers have a wide variety of backgrounds, meaning there is most likely a teacher with the same, if not similar, degree that you hope to obtain. The Dean of Students, Col. John Heflin, plus a few other advisers, has an influence with many universities and every year helps give that extra push that gets several cadets into the school of their dreams. It is members of the faculty like Col. Heflin, who will go out of their way and "Burn some mid-night oil" for students who aren't on their list of cadets. Col. Heflin made miracles happen and helped me get accepted to the Citadel over a month after the final deadline, just days before the finale Pre-knob visit. The dedication you will find in the advisers at CMA is surely unmatched anywhere else.
