As a wife and working mother of two young children, going back to school seemed like only a dream. Although after entering, the doors of San Diego Christian College my view began to change. From the first day, the staff at SDCC began showing me how the Adult Professional Studies Program could work for me. With classes meeting in the evening and only once a week, I began to see my dream coming to life, and I wanted that degree more than ever.
While my goal from the beginning was to earn my degree, I soon learned that I was gaining much more than my degree from SDCC. Through each class, I learned more about myself, gained friendships that will last a lifetime, and most importantly grew in my walk as a Christian. I believe that all of these combined with the wealth of academic knowledge taught by each professor, I am now better prepared for what the future may hold.
Looking back at graduation day, I anxiously awaited my turn to cross the stage. I remember thinking while the road was not always smooth; it was always filled with caring people who wanted me to succeed at my dream. Many of these people were the staff and friends that I had the pleasure of being with every Tuesday night.
My experience at SDCC is not one that I will soon forget. It has made an impression not only on my academic career but on my life as a whole.
