Lawrence Pleasants

BS in Liberal Arts

"I started my degree right out of high school 30 plus years ago. I was in college for two years, went into the workforce, and then was in the army for 22 years. Excelsior gives you the most bang for your buck and is probably the most military-friendly school out there."
