“Never Quit”: Advice From Chris Mathey ‘04

Like most Landmark College students and alums, I had a rocky academic road that eventually led me to Landmark. When I graduated, I was certain about several things. I felt that I had made the most of my time at Landmark. I had re-learned how to learn. Finally, I knew that I wanted to take my academic experience further—Landmark was (and is) the springboard to all that I have accomplished since then.

In addition to earning an A.A. from Landmark, I earned a B.A. from Hobart College. With sheer determination refined at Landmark, I put myself through graduate school on scholarships. I earned my M.A. from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. Today, I am a doctoral student of sociology at Texas A&M University.

Kristin earned a BA in History from Seattle Pacific but Doug returned to Landmark as a Resident Dean and earned a degree at Keene State College.  Doug later earned a Master’s in Education at the University of San Francisco.
