Returning to college as a young professional can be tough at best and nearly impossible at worst, but it Strayer Universitydoesn't have to be a struggle.  Strayer University has programs to meet every attendees needs.  I entered my MBA as a 40 something in the late nineties. 

I attended Regent University and Frostburg State University in the early days of my program.  I transferred from Regent to Frostburg so I could be closer to my campus.  My professional career was extremely busy, and I needed to closer to the campus.  Frostburg met that criteria.  Unfortunately for my academic life, my business became even more demanding and my time at Frostburg was short-lived.

My hope of achieving my MBA seemed more like a dream than a plan.  Shortly after leaving Frostburg, I received a flier in the mail about Strayer University.  The campus I would be associated with was in Manassas, VA, and if an online program better suited my needs, they had that too.

Perfect!  That's what I needed.  I enrolled, transferred in everything possible and started the program.  I did both online and on campus studies.  At that time, the online program was live.  Students from all over the world would join the class sessions in the evening and the professor was in Loudoun County, VA broadcasting and working with Blackboard to offer slides and illustrations for the students.

The students online could communicate with each other during class, and the professor could also privately communicate with the students. Lectures were the same as any classroom sessions with question and answer sessions for students to seek clarity. There were breakout sessionStrayer University Onlines where groups would retreat to private rooms online and plan projects, discuss assignments and assist each other.  It was amazing.

The academic side of Strayer University was as challenging as any college I had attended.  I had three Master's degrees when I entered the program.  So, I was no newbie to academics.  Strayer offered a world class program at the convenience of its student body.  It was a great program, and it was well worth the expense of the day. 

I would highly recommend Strayer University to any individual or business professional wanting to increase his or her skills, but be ready to work.  It's not a freebie.  You will have to earn your degree, but when it's all done you will have a great deal of pride in your accomplishment.  Strayer University is a world class academic environment for today's busy professional.

my husband went back in his 30s and while it wasn't easy it can be done.  It's great when colleges make it easier for working adults to continue and finish their education.

It's a great school, Roger.  I don't know why I did write a blog on it sooner.

Tammy, I think you'll see just about every major university engage in online classes within the next decade.  It's a great way to study.  Congrats to your husband too.

Hi Mike, online classes have opened up endless opportunities. Jody took classes while deployed to the Middle East and was able to get his Nursing degree done. It would not have been possible otherwise.

Great shout out for Strayer University!

Andrea, we had numerous military personnel in our classes.  Most were in Germany (late nights for them), but some were south of the border.

Mike, I always have wondered about those on-line universities as to whether they were quality education or not. Thanks for your explanation.

Strayer is a brick and mortar school, Debbie, but they were one of the early innovators of online studies.  They've been around for around 100 years.  Quality-wise, they are great, but there are some out there that are not as solid.
