Hear From Our Students
Our students are at the core of what makes Span Plan what it is. Their stories and experiences continually inspire not only our staff, but the next generation of our students, as well. While no two Span Plan students are alike, every one of them has something great to offer to our student community. Their Words. Their Stories. Their Success.
"I value the investment and support I have received from Span Plan. They have been a great resource and encouragement to me."
"Whether it is financial support like the childcare scholarship, helpful support sessions, or even social events to help us feel connected and engaged, I value the support Span Plan provides to me as a student."
"As a non-traditional student, the hardest part has been getting back into a rhythm of studying and reading. Thinking about school as an investment and a full time job has helped me shift that mindset."
"I want to empower other Span Plan members to abandon their comfort zones. Find a way to absorb the youth and creativity of the young minds you are surrounded by."
