Meet One of Our Veterans
Adam Jackson spent four years as a U.S. Marine defending people’s lives. With the help of Sacred Heart, he will soon be studying to be an attorney to defend people’s legal rights, as well.
A full-time day job at Sikorsky Aircraft as a Black Hawk assembler means the 26-year-old can only attend classes nights and weekends. But thanks to the accelerated courses, online class options and flexible scheduling that Sacred Heart’s University College provides, Jackson has been able to complete more than half the undergraduate coursework he needs to double major in Political Science and Philosophy in just one year.
