What did you like most about online education?
I chose to complete my degree through OSU Ecampus for several reasons. I have attended several different colleges and wanted to use as many of my existing credits as possible; the Liberal Studies degree was just what I was looking for. I run a child care out of my home, plus have two children and a husband. I could not afford not to work and go to school during the day, and I need to be home for my family in the evenings. Ecampus works perfectly for me!

How do you feel your degree will benefit you in your career, life, etc.? Completing my degree will mean several different things to me, the first being, to help me succeed in a rewarding career. I have run a child care out of my home for the last ten years, in order to stay at home with my children. I want to return to the workforce, and having a degree will help me with this. Another reason for wanting to complete my degree would be to set a good example for my own children. I will be the first person in my family to go to college and hope my children and future generations follow in my footsteps. A third reason would be for my own self-esteem. I have started and quit college several times over the last twenty years since I graduated high school, finally completing this degree will be awesome!
