Find Success at Judson

Judson is close to one of the main communication centers of the United States – Chicago – making it a great place for me to launch my career. I also enjoy the campus, rather than busy streets and expensive parking, there are trees and flowers. This small Chicago suburb has all the perks of the city without the risks. Judson is different and better. If it were not for Judson, I would not have grown as much as a person or been able to produce so much work through my time here.”
