"I cannot say enough good things about my time at the University of the Cumberlands. Through my education there I was given a solid foundation in both physics and mathematics. One of the most beneficial aspects that I was taught was the ability to problem solve. Learning how to take information, categorize and search for the solutions allowed me to not only excel in medical physics but also in other areas in the Radiation Oncology field. The training that I received at UC was invaluable to my professional performance. Personally speaking, the care and dedication that was shown to me concerning my education, by all of my professors, is something that I will never forget. To be able to learn under such godly, talented people was a true gift that I am very grateful to have received."
