Vernon Washington

SMU business student

“I earned my associate degree with a field of study in business at Cedar Valley College in 2007. I took several math classes there, including business algebra, business calculus and statistics, and got a lot of support from the Tutoring Center. Those tutoring services really helped me out.

“I took statistics in the summer, so it was really fast paced, but it was good because the professor broke things down and made it an enjoyable experience.”

Vernon Washington is a student at SMU’s Cox School of Business majoring in financial consulting, with plans to graduate in 2009.
