About three years ago, I woke up to the realization that MY life had changed. My oldest daughter had graduated high school, found a great job and was supporting herself in a small apartment just down the road. My youngest daughter was finishing up her junior year in high school, getting her license and not only needed less of my time and attention but begged for it! I had advanced at work to a position that allowed me to only work a second job two nights a week to support my household. That was the day I decided I could and would start college. That was the day my life took a huge change for the better. I immediately started researching my options and quickly found Granite State College to offer everything I was looking for; online classes for college, part time classes, Manchester NH Classes, Concord NH classes as well as college evening classes. Now, here I am three years later preparing to graduate in June with my adult college degree, a Bachelor of Science in Business Management.
My time here at GSC has been both challenging and rewarding. My studies have impacted both my professional and personal life in a very positive way. My knowledge, confidence and abilities have grown exponentially. I took on the role of GSC University System Student Board (USSB) Representative for the current academic year. In this position I have had the opportunity to become involved in the governance of the New Hampshire University System and it has broadened my understanding of the business side of academics. I have found myself comfortable in the role of advocate for my fellow students and our New Hampshire State College, GSC.
Now it is time for another new challenge; blogging! I am excited about venturing into the foreign world of blogging. I hope to use this opportunity and forum as an effective tool to communicate with the students, staff and faculty of Granite State College. I look forward to sharing my life and my college experiences with all of you.
