Alumnus Lesley Lange on her experience with CAS

"My professors at MSU Denver, were not only expert in their fields, but highly vested in imparting that knowledge to their students, I know that the students from the Speech, Language and Hearing Sciences program were all well prepared for graduate school and beyond."
