I am going for my Bachelor's in Media and Communications. I haven't decided what I will minor in, but since I am already an adult with a career, I think I will do something fun! Maybe drama :) I wasn't allowed to go to college when I finished high school because of religious reasons, and I jumped right into marriage and babies. I'm ready to take some time for me, and go for something I always wanted!

I am in my third term towards getting my BS in Criminal Justice. I want to be a Forensic Specialist so I have a long way to go but I will accomplish my goals with the help of GOD, motivation from my kids and determination and drive I have within.

I'm currently in my last quarter toward my Associates Degree in Digital and Graphic Design, and will start back up in the fall to begin my Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design. I'm a 47 year old wife and mother of a 24 year old and 14 year, both girls.

I was pregnant twice while getting my bachelors degree in Biology! It was tough but I was determined to finish. I was 6 months pregnant when I walked across the stage! My professors were cheering me on because they wanted to see me get my degree. I encourage every mom that desires to go back to school to do it. It is totally fulfilling to accomplish what you set out to do!

I went back when my youngest 2 were 2 yrs and the other 6 mos. It can be incredibly frustrating at times, but so worth it for my own good. I nearly lost my mind as a stay at home mom with my oldest boys and I knew I had to do something! I took mostly online classes, this helps bunches since a lot of them offer some flexibility (like working on stuff after they kids have FINALLY gone to bed) and doesn't require a babysitter. As a single mom, I haven't had to pay the first dime yet, which is beyond helpful. Not a reason to have kids unmarried, but a huge advantage toward getting the education you need to support them!

I only took a semester off to have my little girl and am in my second session (they're divided into 4 8 week periods) at my new school. I take evening and online classes so that I can be with my little one during the day while her daddy works.
