    "I needed another science credit. I was taking courses in the Honors Program at the time, and I signed up for Honors Meteorology. I went into it just to meet a science requirement. I came out of it knowing that it was what I wanted to do."

    "When I was considering COD's Meteorology program, I met with Professor Paul Sirvatka. One of the first things he said was that this is the best school in the country to start your educational career in meteorology. After that first semester, I could tell it really was a great place to go for the subject, and now I completely agree with him that this is the best place to get started."
