Profiles: Shauna Thomas
THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY
Shauna spent the last decade doubting if she would ever obtain her undergraduate degree. However, all doubt was washed away when she spoke with her enrollment counselor, Shauna learned that would be able to transfer credits from previous schools and plans to complete her degree in seven months by taking all of her courses online.
Shauna was drawn to GGU because of the attentive staff. During Shauna's first trimester, she relocated to New York, making the transition back to college challenging. She credits GGU's staff with making sure she was transitioning well in her new home as well as with her studies.
"GGU is truly dedicated to the success of their students. They have flexible scheduling that makes it possible for their students to graduate."
Shauna credits her success to the fact that she is a determined individual. While Shauna has placed her education on the back burner for some years, she got to a position where she could prioritize her educational goals. In her first trimester, Shauna earned an A and two B's.
"I feel like the good grades were the result of my determination to succeed and the constant coaching and encouragement of the GGU staff."
What strategies did Shauna use to achieve her success?
"I rearranged my schedule, sent myself weekly reminders of assignments due, and read while on public transportation. Where there is a will there always is a way"!
