    Congratulations. It brought tears to my eyes (I am a softy anyway) YOu should be so proud. I admire you and your desire to finish. It was a long hard road and you rode it with high grade points and maintained your home too. I will be thinking of you on the 19th. Take pictures, please. My middle dd was the only one of three not to go to college because she chose marriage and two kids. She is in her last year of college now, works fulltime as an accounting Mgr. and I see her so tired sometimes. So I know you went through a lot. You are a suceeder. Go girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was also a non-traditional student part of the time. Had my degree in home ec education, but no desire to follow that path (no jobs either). Went back to school when my #5 son was 3. Promptly discovered I was older than most of my professors (age 36 at the time) and then 2nd semester discovered my daughter was on the way. Hubby went to Korea and kids & I went back home. I took a couple of classes each year for the next several years and I got my elementary certification. Taught two years and realized I used up all of my (very small)store of patience in the classroom and was the wicked witch of the west when I got home so got a job working with #s and a computer all day. Will retire at the end of August after 19 years there.

    Woohoo! Congratulation! What an achievement!

    As a full time, non-traditional, 55 yr old student in MA (medical assisting), I totallly appreciate what you have gone through. You give me hope that I can make it. Ummm, Math 102 and I have to do the Tango next spring. Pass that and I am good to go. Will be doing 19 hours next semester. Now to pay for it as I do not want to get another Student Loan. What a rip-off. I paid 10 x's the amt. for my last year as other students who paid cash up front. Wll not do that again.
    By the way, got letter today I made the Dean's List, again. Happy Dance all around.

    Congrats and good luck.

    Awesome. Someone else from the College of Natural Sciences. Walking across that stage feels good doesn't it?

    Congratulations! :thumbup: I went back to college at age 40 with two kids and a full-time job, so I have some idea of what you've gone through. I'll bet your hubby and kids are very proud of you!
