Why Lynn?

It was two years after graduating from college when Farideh Farazmand found herself bored and unhappy with her nine-to-five job. That was the time when she started to think that there must be more to life and realized her need for continuous learning and bigger challenges. She left her job to go back to school, starting a master's program and subsequently continued her education until she completed the Ph.D. program. It was then that Farazmand knew that she never wanted to leave the university environment and needed a job that provided her with a life of learning. Lynn University not only provided her with the opportunity of lifetime learning, but also gave her the chance to teach and help young students learn how to think and grow. Lynn University is a place small enough to enable you to make close ties with students and colleagues, but big enough to provide you with so many opportunities and an endless variety of activities to contribute and build experience and knowledge. Working at Lynn gives Dr. Farazmand both joy and purpose
