    I worked at Globe University full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    -Student Centered, Family Oriented
    -My coworkers were my family

    Cons

    -State of MN and Lori Swanson's hatred for the Myhre family. The school was unable to make it past the Obama/Swanson initiative to get rid of schools who educated differently. So sad for students who need that kind of flexibility and people who understand that the traditional university isn't for everyone

    Advice to Management

    Keep Trying.
