Just knowing that I'm pursuing a degree and showing initiative--my employer recognizes my motivation and commitment to the organization and community.
On graduation day I really did feel that I was a part of the University and that I had a real connection with the other students.
Even though I live overseas I have been an active contributor to the Penn State spirit. I'm an ambassador for the World Campus.
The online option allowed me to remain an active-duty soldier and a part-time student. It's been great.
