George Shannon, PhD
BA in Liberal Studies '97
"AULA was perfect for me. The classes were terrific, and they had great teachers, as good as any that I’ve experienced. I’ve gone to school for 23 years altogether, so I have a lot of experience in teaching! I know who can do it. The people at AULA gave me the kind of support and training that made the difference for me, allowed me to have the confidence to go and tackle USC at the age of 57... I can’t tell you how wonderful it was to go to school at Antioch University and be encouraged and nurtured the way I was."
