Janice Deloach

"I completed my undergraduate degree at Augusta University. So, I was excited about the opportunity to continue my education here. I work on campus every day and see how faculty take time to build relationships with students and encourage them to push themselves. I have working relationships with many of these faculty. I respect the work they do and knew that I would learn a lot by taking classes with them.
