Something exceptional here

“We’ve lived in different parts of the country, and we’ve had affiliations with a wide variety of colleges and universities, but there’s just something about the School of Social Work. It’s just an exceptional place, and the graduates, by and large, tend to stay in North Carolina. I’ve said it before, but I really like that they go on to share their knowledge and skills with communities across the state, which creates this ripple effect. They truly are problem solvers, and they add to the quality of life in North Carolina.”
