What Our Alumni Say
Quiana Gough began her college career at Brigham Young University in 2001 as a nursing major. The real estate market was booming when she first started working, and the small abstracting company—she was overloaded with work. In the fall of 2007, Gough took advantage of a workload decrease and re-initiated her collegiate education at UB.
"Baltimore is flourishing in certain neighborhoods and not in others. As a former resident of inner city Baltimore, I know that it is time for a real solution to low-income and affordable housing. I want to be a part of that solution." –Quiana Gough, B.S. '10
