I am doing it....

Ok - I have been hemming and hawing for 2 years about going back to school. I was talking to an old professor of mine one night (from my associates program), and she told me that my most recent alma mater had FINALLY gotten their masters programs online, and that she is heavily involved with it.

hmm I say to self. gotta check that out.


so, I do. Seems that the master's level classes I took in my bachelors program will EXPIRE in 2009. So - I called the dean of the school. It was a small program and everyone was very close.

Kathy answered me on 4th of July. What are you doing in the office I ask - getting stuff done she answered!!!

She told me I was in the masters program, I just had to fill out some paperwork. I did so, and today I actually registered for and paid for my class.

I am SO not mentally ready to do this again - but - here I go!!! Like swimming in cold water - just jump in I guess

Online classes are usually a lot more work than in person - but have huge flexibility.

Wish me luck!!!


Hey Lynn- here in NJ one is allowed to audit classes at any state sponsered school if over a certain age. No degree, but lots of knowledge. If one wants the degree, one pays 25% of the tuition I think. Is it the same where you are? Online classes are not really a big deal, just more papers and research really. Just a thought!

Good Morning Cruisers! Beautiful day here in Cheyenne!

Cayla, I do not know about on line classes here in Wyoming, but I imagine that because the state is so big, and schools so limited, that there is a big on-line program. I did have a friend at work in Jackson who was taking a course on-line, she did nothing but complain about how much work she was expected to do in so little time with very little support from the instructor, but she did blame the instructor, not the school or the system for the problems she was having. Congrats on going back to school, I know that is a big step, and good luck to you - I know you will do great!

Hi Scott - one comment about the bar. There's only room for 6 wine bottles - you better go back to the plans. I think you missed something!

Hi folks!
Just got off the 8/20 wonder, and rebooked here for the 8/13/09 wonder while on board...
Some due to Fay influence (try a week earlier), and also trying to cruise earlier so we aren't as close to school

Didn't realize it was the 10th anniversary cruise.. hah.. that's awesome!
Looking forward to it already
