    I finally did it! I am 34 and have two kids. I decided to go back to college five years ago. I had always regretted dropping out after my first semester when I was 18. After that, I had my daughter, went to work full time and life just got in the way. I wanted to make sure that my daughter understood the importance of education and decided to go back to college in 2005. I worked full time for DHL, took care of my daughter, and had my son during the duration of my college years and have managed to finally complete all of my courses. I received my A.S. last year and will graduate on June 19th in Saratoga with my B.S. in Biology with concentration in Environmental Science. It has been a long hard road but I managed to complete 128 credits with a 3.79 GPA in 5 years. I plan to continue on to get a Masters once my son goes to school!
