Working a nine-to-five job after graduation may prove a well-deserved break for Huntsman students with packed schedules who are running on just a few hours of sleep.

Ms. Starley isn’t the only one who understands what it’s like to multitask her way through college; 75 percent of Huntsman students work at least 10 hours each week while also attending school. On top of that, 86 percent provide volunteer service in various organizations in the community.

“Many students fill their schedules to the brim in hopes of getting involved and gaining experience that will set them apart from the crowd,” said Ms. Starley. “I enjoy being surrounded by students who are dedicated to their futures and who know how to work hard to reach their goals. We are all in it together.”
