In my late 20s, I convinced myself that I would never get a degree. I had given up on my dream. I was so hesitant to come back to school because I felt like I was too old and it was past my time, but I am so glad that I did. I see myself becoming the person I always wanted to be.

 Badgers are very highly respected, especially business Badgers in the business world. Look at some of the statistics, like the number of CEOs that have come out of UW–Madison. It just tells you that if that’s what you want, this is the school for you. It’s kind of awesome to officially say I’m a Badger.

 Online classes are definitely helpful and convenient because it allows you to have time to do other things as well. I can work during the day and still come back to my homework at night.
