“I was really nervous about the idea of going back to school. I wasn’t sure if I could fit it into my regular life, where I’m married and work a full-time job. But I heard about EOU’s online program through a friend, and thought that kind of program could work for me. I started off with one class, and I’ve continued taking one class per quarter and chipping away at that degree. It’s taken me five years, but I’m really proud of myself for not giving up and continuing with my classes. I’m signed up for my final class this fall, which I’ll take during my maternity leave. I can’t wait to check off that final box. I’m so grateful that EOU offered a program like this, where I could learn so much, and also fit my degree into an already busy life. I’ve had great support from my advisors and professors, and the whole experience has been great.”
