No matter how high an organization builds its walls or invests in its security, all is for naught if authorized personnel pass information to the outside.

“I have three children, and I wanted to set a good example. I'd started my education a long time ago, and in my career field, promotions and advancement are heavily weighed against if you have a degree or not. And I feel like it's important to complete what you start.” - Charlotte Cruise, BSAST ‘17

“A college degree is a big difference between having a job and a career. You're “at will” having a job, but you can lose your job. With a college degree, you may lose your job, but one thing they can't do, they can't take your college degree. You'll always have it once you finish. For me, this is what made me stay the course. After having finished high school, life just took on a life of its own. You start having bills that are overwhelming. When I decided to go back to finish my education, my experience with my first online course in 2009 scared me to death. I took a psychology course. I’ll never forget it. Scared the life out of me. I barely passed with a C. So much so, I said, I'm not taking any more classes. Because me coming from a traditional school in a class setting, I wasn't quite ready for online schooling. But after four years, I decided, you know what? You need to face your problems up front. So I stayed the course, took the second course four years later, and I passed it. And I said, from this day forward, I'm not gonna stop. So I just took 12, 13 classes in a row, and here I am today. The moment has arrived. I decided to meet the challenge. Life brings on many challenges with few rewards, but this is one reward worth striving for. If I could accomplish this, I can accomplish anything.” - Clarence Ates, BA ‘17

“In my Pakistani culture, girls only receive a formal education until they’re married and after that point, they focus on their new family. So I married in my last year of college, and I moved to Pakistan until my husband was able to come to the U.S.A. But was able to finish my associate degree in advertising design in 2005 (at Mercer County Community College) before I moved. However, as life goes, I came back to the U.S.A. and started my family. With three children at home and cultural duties, I never had time to finish my dream of finishing my bachelor’s degree. But “if there is a will, there is a way” was the biggest motivation. The first semester was the hardest because I had to return to Pakistan, but I was committed to my education and didn’t back down. There were tears because I had to take care of kids, house chores, be there for sports games, school shows and PTA meetings. But my family was my greatest cheerleaders every time. I couldn’t do this without them. TESU gave me courage and made it possible to finish the educational goal that I dreamed of. They gave me a new me. When I walk on the day of my graduation to receive my degree, it is a message to everyone, including new students; if I can do it, anyone can do it. Believe in yourself.” - Amna Pervez Malik, BA ‘17
