“I’m always asked how I heard about AU. I didn’t find it on the internet. I didn’t hear about it through an ad. I didn’t hear about it through a friend. Unfortunately, and fortunately, I learned about AU in prison.” 

Through our prison education program, Steven earned an AA at Fishkill Correctional Facility and went on to earn his BS at our main campus, graduating summa cum laude.
