2002 Psychology Alumnus: Clarence "Cee Jay" Jennings, Jr.

“Going back to school after such a long delay made that first semester tough,” said Jennings. I was working, raising a family, taking 18 credit hours, and just trying to survive it all." Fortunately, Jennings soon found the support at UM-Flint that he needed. This support, combined with Jennings’ own hard work and perseverance, helped him earn his degree.
