Scott LeBlanc feels that Lynn University has a family of like-minded faculty that share a passion for student success. Lynn’s formula for success is strengthened by the low student to teacher ratios leading to more hand’s on learning, one on one time, real-world projects that brilliantly mix theory with practice, as well as genuine encouragement and opportunity for academic growth and intellectual pursuits. Being an advocate of new media, and emerging technology, it is an amazing feeling for LeBlanc to be part of an Apple Distinguished school that commits resources to help prepare students for the world they will be designing.
