2011 OSU Ecampus graduates
Todd Yunker – A student who stands the test of time
Master of Education
What does completing your degree mean to you? How do you feel it will improve your life and career?
I have been a great believer in adult education and have been taking classes for over 30 years. I am moving on to a second career that would not be possible without this degree, an Ed.M. in adult education. It has already been an influence on my career direction, and I have been working in my new field already.
Why did you choose to complete your degree online through OSU Extended Campus? What did you like about this method of education?
I have been a student and taking classes from OSU for the last four decades (1980s to the present). I had a lot of choices but could only see one institution being the right one for my master's degree. I enjoy this methodology so much that I am becoming a professional in the field.
Did you have an instructor or adviser who was influential in helping you succeed as a distance student?
I cannot point to just one individual who "got me through" this program. I have been in the private sector for many years and find that at OSU, as in the private sector, most people have strengths and I tried hard to follow them.
What will your Ecampus degree allow you to do that you were unable to do before?
I have been in need of a new career. I have been in professional sales for 30-plus years. I have not been able to get work in any other field. This has been a great help in moving into instructional design.
