Renee Farrell

BS 14


Balancing, Work, Family & School

Renee had been taking college courses for many years before choosing Golden Gate University for its excellent reputation as a business school and flexible class schedule.

Work and personal obligations made it difficult for Renee to get the courses she needed at other institutions. Like Renee did, many students at GGU hold full-time jobs and are raising families, making it a great place to study with peers who are juggling multiple responsibilities.

Renee appreciates that the curriculum at GGU makes it achievable for working professionals. She earned 27 credits during her first year at GGU -- something she feels she could not have accomplished at a traditional university. She was also grateful that she could apply much of what she learned at GGU immediately to her job.

As Renee puts it, "the positive energy from the other students and academic advisors kept me focused." Her advice to prospective students? "Do not wait any longer, because your degree will make a positive impact on your life"!
