Off to Graduate School! VU Senior Heads to CSUN

Now at the end of her four years in the undergraduate psychology program at Vanguard, VU Senior Samantha Empero is listening to God’s call to serve as a licensed marriage and family therapist.

“I have really appreciated Vanguard. This is a small Christian school where God is significantly incorporated into nearly every class I have taken,” said Samantha. “Vanguard has helped me through the books that I have read, papers that I have written, and the discussions in class.”

This fall, she will attend California State University, Northridge (CSUN) to pursue a master’s in psychology, and go on to achieve her ultimate goal of becoming a licensed marriage and family therapist.

The advanced training in the field of psychology Samantha will receive at CSUN is centered in one of the world’s most diverse urban regions, where excellence in teaching and research is paramount. She will enter into a competitive field in a multicultural marketplace, but is excited to follow God’s calling as she travels the road ahead.

Congratulations, Samantha!
