Jonathan Balko, ground bba student

What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?

My immediate family. Obtaining a degree will not only allow progression in my career field, this degree will be an example for my children as well.

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

Averett University offered the Bachelor program I was most interested in. Having a satellite campus location near work (Marine Corps Base Quantico) makes for convenience. Colleagues have also told me how great Averett’s program and professors are.

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

One tip I would share to fellow classmates (on campus) would be to use your Moodle account. This allowance of interaction among classmates and professors ensures information and assignments are understood. Always have your syllabus on hand.

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

Knowing that I’m continually getting closer to graduation and a short term goal of mine. My wife Heather has also been very supportive of my attendance as a ground student and provides the extra assurance that I will be able to get assignments completed on time.

What is your anticipated Date of Graduation?

With my last class in the fall of 2018, I look forward to graduation soon after.
