I remember when I was thinking about going back to school and all I thought was how will I ever be able to work, be a wife, be a mom, and go to school? The transition has been seamless and I actually look forward to going to class. Somehow it just works itself out. I don't want future students to ever think that it's an impossible goal. It's completely possible and very much worth it in the end.
D'Youville is a well-known and respected college. The campus atmosphere is very inviting as are the class sizes. The greatest thing about the ADVANCE program is the relationship building process. I feel like, even though we are in our classes for short periods, I still have created long lasting relationships with most of the professors. They all seem to be accessible at all times and truly have the best interest for their students.
Continuing my education has helped me tremendously both professionally and personally. I have a new found confidence and feel that I can contribute more to some of the decisions made within my department at First Niagara Bank where I currently work. I think that the ADVANCE Business Management degree will certainly assist me with my current position as well as help me move up within the company.
Being a mom and going to school while working full-time, is not an impossible goal. It's very worth it in the end.
