Student Talk


  • Blair West-Keyes

    "After attending a larger aviation University, I found that Lewis University had... a very close community... more personal faculty that were able to help you with your track to achieving success in the aviation industry."

    Director of Public Safety and Security, Airports Council International-North America

    "If it wasn't for Karen Calloway (a Lewis Admissions Counselor) I would not be where I am today. As an inner city teenager, with no transportation, and living on my own, she drove to my apartment, picked me up and walked me through the education and admissions process. I didn't have the grades or financial support to get into any colleges, but Lewis enrolled me in their "Success Program" because they saw the potential and motivation in me to excel, which I did."
