Favorite Thing About Being an Enrollment Advisor

It is rewarding to know that when I go to work each day that I am helping to make lasting change not only in their life but also in their families and communities. Adult learners, in my experience, have a strong sense of fulfillment about earning their degree and a firm awareness about how it will facilitate their overall life goals.

Advice for a Prospective Adult Student Looking to Return to School

Gather as much information as you can about the resources available to help you complete your degree. More importantly, do not tell yourself "No" or that it is not possible to go back to school until you have thoroughly researched your options. Being a student may seem improbable at this time but the more you know, the more able you will be to create a successful plan to achieve your educational goals.

Community College Experiences and Lessons Learned

As a non-traditional aged student myself, I began taking classes at my community college. I found that as a returning student I was more focused on my studies and more understanding about the need to be well-rounded in my course selection.
