I enjoy attending Penn State University. I decided to go to their online campus, Penn State World Campus, as I live in Illinois instead of Pennsylvania. I attended a two year college after graduating high school and received my associates degree in social sciences; however, I was unable to further my education at the time. A few years later, I was a mother of a one year old, currently pregnant and working at a Domestic Violence Agency; I found the thought of continuing my education scary. Penn State has made it easy for myself and my family. Now, after two years I will be graduating this December and I am so thankful!
