Kevin Bryan

What does completing your degree mean to you? How do you feel it will improve your life and career?
Completing my degree means that I have gained the knowledge and skills necessary to begin a successful and rewarding career in the natural resources field. Having been educated on the various natural resource issues that we currently face, I feel that I can make a positive impact on resource management going forward.

Why did you choose to complete your degree online through OSU Extended Campus? What did you like about this method of education?
I chose to complete my degree online through OSU Extended Campus because I live out of state in Florida, yet I still wanted to take part in one of the best natural resource degree programs in the nation. I liked the challenge of this method of education. It is essential to be focused and disciplined in order to succeed with distance education.

Did you have an instructor or advisor who was influential in helping you succeed as a distance student?

I was highly influenced by two people during my time as a distance education student at OSU: my advisor Marge Victor and Bob Ehrhart. Marge was very helpful in guiding me down the right path throughout my college career and she was always there to answer any questions I may have had. Bob Ehrhart was a stellar influence in the classroom and really made the learning experience challenging yet enjoyable.

What will your Ecampus degree allow you to do that you were unable to do before?
My Ecampus degree will allow me to pursue a career in natural resource management that would have been unobtainable prior to this scholastic achievement. I now possess the tools necessary to enter the workforce and hopefully make a difference in natural resource management.
