Why did you choose Oregon Tech Online?

I attended Oregon Tech when I graduated from high school and had very positive memories of my time there. When I was considering going back to college, Oregon Tech was one of the first schools that I looked at attending.

What do you like best about your major?

I have really enjoyed everything that I am learning. Having just been promoted to a management position, I am enjoying learning skills and information that I can directly apply to my current career.

What has been the greatest aspect of completing your degree online?

Since the classes that I am taking are all being offered online, I am able to attend school full-time while working my full-time position in management.

What career do you hope to have after you graduate from Oregon Tech?

Shortly after I made the decision to return to school and complete a bachelor's degree, I received a promotion in management at my current place of employment. I hope to continue in management where I am currently employed.

Do you have any advice for incoming students?

The best advice I could give is to make the decision to complete your education and then hold yourself to it. Life can be overwhelming and it is easy to decide to take some time off or even quit for a while. Keep sight of your goal and break it down by terms, if necessary, to make your goal seem more reachable.
