- [00:00:05.040]My name is Shawnicy Thomas,
- [00:00:06.870]and I am a graduate student in the
- [00:00:09.386]Ms. Agronomy program through UNF.
- [00:00:12.600]The biggest selling point is I needed a program
- [00:00:15.540]that was a hundred percent online,
- [00:00:17.790]and would be something that would work
- [00:00:20.430]around my own schedule.
- [00:00:21.990]The program in itself it's been amazing honestly,
- [00:00:25.500]I've learned not just, you know,
- [00:00:27.780]the topics of each course and the assigned material
- [00:00:31.230]the instructors wanted us to learn,
- [00:00:33.470]but I learned a lot more about myself
- [00:00:36.600]and what I could actually manage.
- [00:00:38.700]So I learned a lot about myself that, you know,
- [00:00:40.920]I'm capable of pretty great things.
- [00:00:43.740]The instructors have done an amazing job adapting
- [00:00:45.674]what typically you would see as in person,
- [00:00:49.410]you know, materials, classes,
- [00:00:51.330]if you have questions, if you have concerns,
- [00:00:53.850]if you have needs, wants, or anything,
- [00:00:56.700]within I would say 12 to 24 hours they always respond.
- [00:01:00.720]It allows you to manage your own time which is amazing.
- [00:01:04.650]I'm 35 and then here we are back in school.
- [00:01:07.650]So don't think age is a hindrance
- [00:01:10.410]to why you can't do this,
- [00:01:11.370]let people know you're doing it,
- [00:01:13.140]it feels good when you tell somebody,
- [00:01:15.420]hey I'm getting a master's degree,
- [00:01:17.520]right, it makes you feel really good.
- [00:01:18.900]So share it, but then, you know,
- [00:01:21.390]get the support and then stick with it
- [00:01:23.520]because it's possible
- [00:01:25.770]and once you're done it's gonna feel amazing.
- [00:01:27.750]Thank you, you have an for offering it online
- [00:01:30.580]because that's a life saver for students like myself.
- [00:01:34.523](upbeat music)
