Bachelor of General Studies
Why did you choose Columbia College?
Columbia College offered me the convenience and affordability I needed to finish my degree as a returning student. Columbia College's online degree option allowed me to get my degree as I continued working a full-time job and raising a family.
What are your plans for the future?
My degree will enhance my qualifications so that I may be a more valuable asset to my employer, and also will enable me to advance in my career.
What was your favorite course, and why?
There were so many great courses, I can't choose just one. My favorite courses were those relating to the environment, especially U.S. Environmental History, Environmental Readings, and Environmental Ethics. All helped me to look at our world in a different way, and understand how our world became what it is today, how I can personally make an effort to change the state of our environment, and preserve it for future generations.
Is there anyone you would like to thank?
I would like to thank my family: mom, dad, brother and sister, and my sons, for their years of encouragement when things were difficult. I would like to thank Keith for his love and support, and my many friends who encouraged me when I vented about papers and textbooks and assignment deadlines. It was all very much appreciated! Thank you!
