What Students Say
Rebeka Ragan '16, I can honestly say that my time at Robert Morris was the most enlightening time in my life. I am thankful that my education was something that I had to work for because it taught me to appreciate it so much more. Appreciate the struggle, for you will appreciate nothing as much if you don't struggle for it. Never give up on your dreams. Never let anyone tell you, you can't - because you can. Never stand in the way of your own success. You can do anything you put your mind to. Read more about Rebeka's inspirational path to her success
