"I'm Doing It For Me!"

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Liberal arts student Laura Boysen outlines why she chose to complete her degree online through John Brown University.

I am blessed with a wonderful husband, three beautiful daughters, an amazing church, a full-time job and my family lives here in NWA. Busy? Just a little bit! I’ve been asked numerous times why on earth I would choose to enter the online Degree Completion Program in Liberal Arts at JBU.

The answer is easy – I’m doing it for ME. I started working at a young age and always assumed that a job in banking was my career. Now, I know that banking isn’t what I want to do forever, but all of my previous college-level classes were geared in that direction. I submitted my information to JBU and met with an admissions counselor just to see if I could pursue my bachelor's in something different. In evaluating my goals and strengths, it became obvious that the online Liberal Arts program was perfect for me. Not only did my grades reflect what interested me, but I became excited hearing about the classes that this program offered. I was thrilled to get started on my new career!

This degree completion plan provides me with the convenience of online classes, the support of my peers and professors, as well as a bachelor’s degree in what interests me. I am excited that I have the opportunity to embark on this journey with JBU. It will be a wonderful day when I graduate with a bachelor’s degree. It will fit perfectly with my other important titles such as M.R.S. and M.O.M. 

If you are considering a degree completion program, I urge you to talk to an admissions counselor at JBU. Your new career could be waiting for you, just like mine was!
