What makes Keystone special to me?
"Keystone College is my extended family. Professors and students care about each other. I teach small classes. Students get individual attentions. As President Boehm said, we not only know our students by their names, we also know them by their dreams. As a faculty, I am blessed to work with my wonderful colleagues. Keystone College supports my research and attending international and national conferences financially. I enjoy teaching at Keystone College."
