What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?

My school administration expressed that they would like for me to consider moving into an administration position. I would need the credentials in order for this to become a possible reality.

Why did you choose Averett’s Graduate & Professional Studies Program?

I appreciated the customer service that I received from Andrea, in the Chesapeake office, as I was trying to make a decision about which college to attend. I was also impressed with the course offerings.

Please share one tip for your fellow classmates and future AU students:

Be encouraged to embrace every aspect of learning, no matter what! Each leg of your journey will offer essential opportunities for developing deeper insights about oneself and well as your course content.

What helps to keep you motivated while you are in the program?

Being a good example for my students motivates me while I am in this program. They are aware of my progress/journey along the way and they always ask how I am doing in school (just like I ask them!).

What is your anticipated Date of Graduation?

My anticipated date of graduation is December 2017.
