set out to succeed online through eCampus
“I chose this program for many of the same reasons that most of you did - the relevant topics, the flexibility, etc. I spent years telling myself that I would get my master's degree when I figured out exactly what it was that I wanted to do with my life and where my passions were. They were right in front of me all along! I love working with students and I find it very exciting to see the development they go through as a study abroad returnee.
I think what drew me to this program the most was its relevance to me in my position. While I enjoy working with students, there are certainly days when I feel that our 10 year age difference is much larger - I just don't understand where they are coming from and why they make the decisions that they do. I hope that this program will help me understand student development and help me to see students and their choices and decisions in a different way.
I also travel a great deal for my job (or at least I did prior to my pregnancy) so the flexibility that this program offered was a key component.”
