I was on the 7 year plan for college, and while I did finish my undergraduate degree I’ve thought about continuing my education further. Even if I don’t get a second degree to boost my career, I’ve thought about doing it just for personal reasons because I enjoy learning. I’ve taken a class here and there – not much more than that. Let’s be honest, with 2 little ones and one on the way, a traditional education is NOT going to happen.
Let’s face it, our schedules are crazy and tuition is expensive!
So what’s a Mom to do? How do you meet your goals of going back to school or furthering your degree while managing a household?
Ivy Bridge College is focused on helping mom’s succeed! In fact, 50% of their students are mothers! Since you take all of your classes online, you can learn from the comfort of your home, while wearing your yoga pants and favorite hoodie (sort of like what I’m wearing as I’m writing this post…) In addition to providing educational opportunities, Ivy Bridge College also offers a special online community to connect their moms – which I think is great!
The college offers dedicated weekly success coaching which includes career planning, resumé writing and interviewing skills all great benefits to help keep you on track!
