Program Type/Area of Study: Management
What prompted you to return to school?
I knew if I wanted to move into a management role I had to go back to school and finish my education. At the time, my wife was attending Bellevue University for her degree in health management so when she finished I started my online degree in business.
What military education benefits, such as the GI Bill, did you use?
G.I. Bill; I am utilizing Post-911 GI Bill benefits which covers 60% of my expenses.
What has your experience been like as a student?
Everything I expected and more!
What challenges did you have adjusting to campus culture after military life?
None at all. The school made the adjustment process pain free.
Do you believe your military experience has made you a better student?
Without a doubt, my experience in the military has taught me to look at things with a much more mature point of view than I ever had 20 years ago. It was my military experience that convinced me that I was ready to go back and finish my degree.
What advice do you have for veterans returning to school?
Do it now, do not wait for an excuse to go back to school. If you have earned G.I. Bill benefits or VA benefits; put them to use. The education that you earn will definitely give you an edge in the job market and the experience you will have at Bellevue University is second to none.
Do not wait, now is the time to get back into higher learning.
