You are never too old to go back to or finish school.
What is your motivation for obtaining your degree?
I chose to obtain my degree for several reasons. First and foremost, by completing my Bachelor’s degree, I gained a competitive edge in the workforce and increased my knowledge and skills to become more qualified to advance in my current position. Additionally, I was incredibly motivated by my desire to meet higher expectations, not only for myself, but for my family as well.
Why did you choose Averett’s Graduate & Professional Studies Program?
After completing my Associates Degree, I researched various universities with the hopes of finding an excellent online program that worked well with my hectic schedule. I immediately fell in love with Averett, its remarkable staff, and the program that so perfectly coincided with my working hours.
Pease share one tip for your fellow classmates and future AU students:
If I could give advice to any of my classmates or future AU students, it would be: You are never too old to go back to or finish school. When you make that critical decision, never give up! No matter how exhausted you may be, surround yourself with encouraging and supportive friends and family, lean on them when necessary, but keep going!
What helps to keep you motivated while you are in the program?
My motivation for staying in the program and continuing my education was the love and support of my family and friends. Even when I doubted myself and wasn’t sure if I could do it because I was too burnt out or exhausted, they kept me focused and gave me the motivation to keep going and striving for the best.
