"Walden University Education is of the highest standard. Students graduated from Walden University are critical thinkers, assertive, independent and well grounded in serving communities and becoming self sufficient. Walden has taught many students to continue to advocate for social changes in underserved communities."

"Would not recommend Walden to anyone. They don't help you find preceptors and they're way too strict on who you can do it with. Your instructors don't teach you anything, so you have to self teach. When you reach out to someone from the school they just send you verbiage from the handbook instead of working with you to find a solution. If my credits could transfer to another school, I would've done it by now."

"I learned and enjoyed my time at Walden University. I believe getting the doctoral degree is serving me well in my current position. I think the professors, chairpersons and the second/URR committee persons are what really makes the difference. I finished with having a great chairperson and committee. However, I initially did not have the same good graces. My committee helped me to use the education that I received and interject it into the dissertation/case study. My committee talked to me, educated me, guided me towards my degree. I am so thankful for them and how they have to use my "education for good"!"

"I chose Walden because of the PMI-PMP affiliation and found the classes and people strategically aligned with the principles associated with PMI. The level of quality in the classes and the people are unparalleled. I would highly recommend this school and this program. I believe in it so much I applied and became an Ambassador."

"Walden University is an exemplary institution that provides rigor and relevance regarding scholar-practitioner development. The curriculum, instruction, and assessment experiences were stellar encouraging networking and learning beyond the pages of the texts. I was able to secure resources from the library, writing center, and career planning and development department throughout my journey. I attended other schools that paled in comparison to the experience at WaldenU. Walden is a hidden GEM that honors its commitment to social change and educating its students. #IAmWalden #MyWaldenU"

"Hello I had a wonderful experience at Walden University. Although working on my dissertation was challenging, I loved the rigor and learning experience, even when overwhelmed. Lastly, I have met some amazing faculty and peers that I am still in contact with after completing my education. If I had to offer a word of advice, I would say trust your doctoral chair and committee members, and enjoy the journey. Dr. Geneva L. Reed"

"Walden University is a phenomenal school, and anytime someone considers graduate school, I always recommend Walden University. I have completed a degree (MSN) and post-graduate certificate (nursing education), and I am enrolled in a WU program for the third time, which shows how excellent the instruction is."

"One thing for sure is acknowledging it was not easy. However, it was indeed a challenging experience. I worked towards my master's degree and holding a full-time job while pregnant came with its obstacles. Moreover, I did not allow those obstacles to affect the goal and purpose of retrieving my master's degree. After my son was born at the beginning of January, finishing up the quarter and preparing for my capstone course was necessary. My professors were understanding and patient with me as well. The capstone course made it all worthwhile. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every week and interacting with my colleagues during discussions. You get a sense of whom the person is academically and professionally, opening your mind to different perspectives. It has been a long journey, and I am proud to say that I completed the capstone course and online program successfully. Do not let outside factors keep you from pursuing your dreams and goals in life; let them motivate you to go further."

"I changed my career and now teach online. I feel that my educational journey helped me to become a better business owner and instructor. Walden was the only University to use the term of diversity. In the past, every time I was told how diverse I am, it was always in a negative tone. I learned that diversity is a positive and appreciate that Walden helped change my course in life."

"My educational experience with Walden University was exceptional. I often share my experiences with other people who are matriculating with other institutions. One in particular is that my Chair worked through her personal medical issues to help ensure I completed my degree (PhD). I have shared my positive experiences on my Podcast: “ The Book of Dad Radio Show”. I am truly appreciative of Walden for helping mold me into the Professional I am today."

"Walden University has offered me so many opportunities of change and has allowed me to grow over the years. The team members are always looking for opportunities to help you move forward in your career and to promote positive change. I have received four degrees from Walden over the years and cannot say enough about the mentoring and successful path they have provided for me. Even after graduating, the university is still offering support and continued resources to allow me to grow and succeed."

"At times classes and residencies seemed to be overwhelming, but I kept reminding myself that I was not going to be one of those students who gave up on their education because it got to difficult. I am proud that I attended Walden University and tell everyone how much I believe in social change for our communities that we live in. Even though I retired, I went back to work part-time and I am still involved in many other things that help our kids to grow up to be outstanding citizens."

"I completed 2 degree programs here at Walden University. The model of social change is amazing. In fact, as I have move forward in my career, my goal is to make positive social change when I come in contact with the people in my community. Completing an online degree program is not easy and takes self-determination and discipline. I learned how to do both and increase my time management skills while studying at Walden. The staff and faculty were always welcoming from the enrollment staff to the career center after I graduated. The resources don't stop just because your degree was conferred. Walden is your home for life. I love that I can reach out still and receive a welcoming response. Walden recognizes its alumni and I've had several opportunities to present to the student body and that experience was an amazing experience. The fact that Walden does not just leave you to the side, holding no interest in your career and how you're doing after you leave the program feels like one of a kind. Walden was one of my best decisions. Walden is the gift that keeps giving."
