What does earning your OSU degree mean to you?
It means a lot to me and my family. It took a lot of effort on both sides in order for me to finish my degree this summer.

Why did you choose to complete your degree online through OSU Ecampus? What did you enjoy about this method of education?
Because I have a family to support, a wife and two girls, ages 4 and 2. I also have a full-time job as an electrician.

Did you have an instructor or advisor who was influential in helping you succeed as a distance student?
Yes, I did. Her name is Rachel Dilts. She was my psychology teacher, and she inspired me to learn and get better through education and hard work.

What will your Ecampus degree allow you to do that you were unable to do before?
My degree will allow me to pursue higher education in Master’s in Aviation Management. Also, I feel a lot more comfortable with speaking, writing and people in general.
