Cole Hippen completes educational journey


Cole Hippen '19 knew he needed a master's degree to achieve his career goals. But balancing a full-time job with graduate work created a challenge.

He committed to Simpson's Master of Arts in Criminal Justice program in 2017 and delivered the commencement address in front of a packed Cowles Fieldhouse just two years later.

Following his graduation, the investigator for the Ames Police Departments shared his journey through Simpson's Evening & Online Program with the Ames Tribune.
