"I'm only getting started"

Alexandra’s experience at Cleveland State University, in her words, has been nothing less than extraordinary.

And that's because of the support and encouragement she said that she's receiving from generous alumni and friends.

She’s currently in the first year of the Master of Public Administration (MPA) in the Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs and says her decision to enroll at CSU was rather immediate.

“I looked at a few different programs, but when I visited Levin College, I felt an instant connection."

“The professors were passionate and actively involved in the Cleveland community through their research, and the students had nothing but wonderful things to say about the program.”

As a recipient of a Graduate Assistantship, she’s working alongside Dr. Nicholas Zingale, conducting research for the Ohio Children’s Trust Fund, developing the revised MPA curriculum and connecting with alumni.

“I am so grateful for the engaged learning opportunities that CSU has afforded me,” she said.

Having quickly grasped the notion of legacy, Alexandra plans to enrich hers quickly after graduation next year.

“I can hardly wait to begin my career in the Cleveland community so I can begin paying it forward by helping other students financially.

"I'm only getting started."
