About me

Thank you for visiting my blog! Given the wealth of online college information already available on the net, some may wonder why I decided to launch this blog. After several years of attending online classes, I found that most online learning sites lack a human element. With so many colleges vying for my attention (and yours), I thought it would be nice to have a platform to share our thoughts and experiences. With that in mind, here is a little information about me. My name is Joy and I am thirty-four years old. Six years ago, I decided to head back to school. Obviously, that was not a small decision. At the time, I was not familiar with online learning, so I opted to attend night classes at my local university. After one year of working full-time during the day and attending classes a couple nights a week, I was the proud owner of 12 credit hours. Although I was happy to have earned those hours, I quickly realized that it would take me 10 years to finish my degree at that pace! Needless to say, I started looking for other alternatives. After quite a bit of research, I ultimately decided to attend classes at Central Texas College online for two years to get my basics. I then transferred to Columbia College online, where I presently attend classes. Today, I am both proud and excited to say that I will be graduating in May 2008 and proceeding to law school! UPDATE (5/18/08): I graduated May 10th with a BA in Business Administration and will be attending law school this fall! Looking back, I realize there were so many times when I could have easily thrown in the towel and said, it’s just not worth it. Between work and other commitments, there were (and still are) plenty of things vying for my time and attention. I will not tell you that it is going to be easy, but I will tell you that earning your college degree online is an incredibly rewarding experience. As I continue to add information to this blog, please feel free to contact me using the Contact form. If I cannot answer your questions, perhaps I can at least point you in the right direction.
