Why did you go back to school? I got terminated and you don’t know what to do after that, you’re kind of lost. Going back to school was one of those options I never thought I would really do but I have a little boy who is 3 now. At the time he was 1 and a half and it’s kind of scary to not know what to do but I thought that going back to school would be the best option. The business college called me right away after I applied online and they were really excited to meet me and I think that’s one of the main reasons why I started going back to school. I was excited and had real high energy and decided that’s what I needed to do and that’s what I ended up doing.
How do you fit in? I’ve made a lot of friends. Not only students, you interact with teachers and then you really start caring about everyone you’re with and you care about their success as well. So you kind of feed off each other and get some little competitions going over who gets the better grades - it keeps you motivated for school.
How does your son feel about you going to school? He’s not old enough to be in school but he likes to color and he’s like ‘I wanna do homework too mom’ and I’m like ‘yes!’ So it kind of gets us a little bit of alone time too when he’s doing his homework and I can do my homework. That makes it easy.
SBBCollege celebrates 125 years: It’s amazing. I don’t know too many businesses that have been around 50 years, 25 years, even 10 years. 125 years really puts a staple into what to expect, it’s the excellence that is your expectation coming into the school – ‘wow, it’s been here so long they must really know what they’re doing so I’m gonna come to this school’. It was a deciding factor for me.
Congratulations SBBCollege: I definitely want to congratulate them and thank them for allowing students to come back, being there for us and just the students in general. Putting together financial aid and getting us ready for jobs. It’s just one of those things that I definitely recommend someone to do if you’re thinking about going back to school, call SBBCollege because they are going to get you excited to go back. They’re going to get you into that homework. They are going to get you what you need to do to become a successful person.
