Professor Sutherland is by far one of the best instructors I've had. He truly cares for his students and wants them to learn the material. It's about learning, not just passing the course.

Key lime martinis after class. On a serious note, I attend MPT because of the professional staff and friendly atmosphere. There are many choices, but I will always come to beautiful Ft Lauderdale to attend your school.
