Erika Busch Peterson talking about her HDFS degree from Oregon State Ecampus Play

  It seemed to be the most complete program anywhere, period. I did a lot of research. I talked to several people, and your program is known. I got into it thinking, 'Well, we'll see how it goes,' and I loved it. It was perfect.  
– Erika Busch Peterson, B.S. in Human Development & Family Sciences
