    My experience with Paramount College has been unexpected to say the lease. I wasn’t looking to go back to school but when I was brought upon Paramount, I thought it was just another small college that was trying to get students to join. When I looked into the college more and got to know Nasreen, I understood her goal for her students and the success she wanted for us.
