Accomplishments since Graduating
Obtaining my master’s degree and moving into my first apartment.
Personal hobbies I enjoy are reading, writing, watching Netflix/Hulu, and spending time with my girlfriend, family, and friends. I also enjoy botany, specifically under water (freshwater) plants, I’ve been a fan of aquatic plants for a long time, and am about to acquire some for my apartment.
What sold you on this program?
I was completely sold on this program by the start of my senior year of undergrad, after doing extensive research and learning that it was completely online and had an adult education concentration.
What do you think was the most rewarding/challenging about this program?
For me personally, the most rewarding/challenging aspect of this program, was overcoming my discomfort of vocal participation in class. It’s an issue I’ve struggled with for as long as I can remember, and I’m glad I was encouraged to enact my full potential.
How did your experiences as a student help you in your professional/personal life after graduation?
I used a lot of my professional experiences as the foundation for most of my academic work as a grad student. As I researched core aspects of social science and various factors of my work, it allowed me to expand my perspective as a case manager.
