    I received a lot of support and time from my instructors at SLC. If you want to do well, you can. I have become good friends with my entire program and it has been fun learning with them throughout the year. I had a great experience at the Supply Chain Management Association (SCMA) Student Case Competition this year as well. With the knowledge learned and great teamwork, we were all able to contribute to the overall success.
