“My experience at Cleary has been nothing but wonderful. From the academic advisors to the different professors I have had, everyone has been helpful, easy to work with, and understanding. I am so thankful that the Schostaks are offering this opportunity to pay for our tuition, without this I would still be stuck paying for my college degree. Overall, this program is wonderful and I recommend anyone who can take this opportunity to do so.” ~Trevor
“Making the decision to go back to school was not an option for me, with bills and a child that is quickly approaching his college years. I felt as that ship had sailed for me. When the opportunity to go to Cleary from work I was skeptical, there had to be a catch or hidden fees. My curiosity got the better of me and I filled out the application. Within a day I was contacted by an advisor from Cleary that made the process very easy. I would describe the online school experience at Cleary very similar to TSFR connect modules, the teachers go above and beyond to answer questions and most have (and record) zoom meetings to make sure everyone gets the answers they need to be successful. I have just completed my second semester and so far everything is going great! The app (Canvas) helps you stay organized with to do list, and the discussions have been a lot of fun. The information has been clear, easy to find and the advisors stay engaged with you helping register every semester. I have found a greater confidence within myself from being back enrolled in school. I never thought I was going to be able to obtain a degree as it always seemed out of reach financially, I will always be eternally grateful for this opportunity.” ~John
“In August of 2019, due to the support from TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants where my mother is employed, I applied and was accepted to a master’s program called Culture, Change and Leadership at Cleary University. The online program offered me the opportunity to not only learn technical skills and business theories, but also learn more about how to be a good leader in a way that worked for my schedule. I took this knowledge and applied it to my job as a Marketing Manager at a law firm. I found that each week what I was learning in class applied to my everyday tasks and helped me be more successful in my role.
Jump to the end of 2020, armed with months of studying the traits of a successful business and leader, and I was ready for a new challenge. I started looking for a position that would allow me to apply my skills I gained due to my master’s program and where I could make a real impact on an organization. In January 2021, I accepted a position as a Marketing Director at an IT services company. Working for my master’s gave me the confidence to apply for a leadership role where I knew I would be responsible for executing strategic business decisions. I am grateful for the opportunities and learning moments that I have been able to experience thanks to my time at Cleary and the support of TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants.” ~Claire
