"If you follow Program Mapper or the pathways, you probably could have gotten everything out of the way and then been done on time. . . . So it helps you with efficiency and being clear about how to get out as quickly as possible."
"When I was still debating on what to major in, [the Program Mapper] gave me an understanding of what courses I would be taking. So that was helpful in helping me make my decision...And when I was told to double major, I could go [to the maps] and check . . . comparisons of [the] overlap between my current major. . . . I was still able to go back and forth. So that was helpful."
"The salary growth and career section helped me to get a stepping-stone into researching more specifics about what I wanted to start a career in."
"I can’t imagine how our advising team would do their work if we hadn’t built these maps. The more schools that see this, the more they want to implement it."
"What I like about PPM is the visual plan, which allows students to compare different programs. Incredible resource to show a bird’s-eye view."
"Before PPM existed, I (advisor) would have to print off a catalog along with the gen ed list and create a step-by-step ed guide for each student. Now we can go to the mapper."
