Extended information

Why did you choose Columbia College?

While I was shopping for a college, the two critical criteria that I looked for was reputation and an understanding of the military community. As a military spouse, we move frequently, enrolling in a credible college that could move with me in a moments notice was vital and Columbia College fit the bill.

What are your plans for the future?

I am currently volunteering with a local sea turtle conservation center and am using the academic knowledge I obtained to further their mission of protecting threatened and endangered sea turtles. As a result of my success at Columbia and interest in non-profit organizations, I am considering a Masters Degree in Non-profit management.

What was your favorite course, and why?

My favorite course was Consumer Behavior, as a marketing major, understanding what drives human behavior, whether to purchase, donate or complete a specific task was extremely interesting to me.

Is there anyone you would like to thank?

I would like to thank my loving husband for his extraordinary support and understanding. Completing this degree required a significant financial commitment as well as required us to sacrifice already limited family time. Through it all, my husband encouraged me and never let me quit. Without his support I would not have been able to succeed at the level I did.
