Major: Social Work
Graduation Date: May 12, 2018
Not Counted Because: Transferred; Started Part-Time

I started attending college part-time because I was working part-time and was not really sure what degree I wanted to pursue. After taking a wide range of different classes in child care, business, marketing, and nursing, I found social work and loved it. When I transferred to the University of Illinois I attended full-time and will be graduating with Delta Mu Honors. After graduating, I will attend graduate school part-time and work full-time.

Having a college degree means so much to me for a couple of reasons. I will be the first in my family to obtain a bachelor’s degree. I believe many more career opportunities will be available now that I have my bachelor’s degree.
