"I just said that's it, I have to make a commitment. I got to a point where my kids were getting older; they were going to be headed to college. I wanted to set an example for them to show them how important education is. I just decided to dive in and I went back full time."
"I've always liked working with numbers and finance," says Shannon Boggs, who graduated in May 2011 with a Management degree with an emphasis in accounting. "After earning an associate degree in General Business at Massasoit Community College, I knew I wanted to get a bachelor's degree. Curry made that an easy choice."
Scott Richards '12 had a laser focus once he decided to pursue a career with Homeland Security Investigations, formerly known as U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). He served in the Coast Guard right after high school, but ultimately was inspired by an ICE special agent he met on the job.
"As I approached 40, I was excited and scared at the thought of changing paths, but life requires a little bravery. I was grateful for this valuable opportunity to re-define myself and what I had to offer. I wish everyone could take advantage of this opportunity. Obtaining my Communication degree from Curry was worth every penny."
"The small class size and personal attention is another big benefit. Sometimes it's overwhelming trying to juggle work and school. There are clear and challenging expectations from day one, but there's also support by the faculty. Many of my professors worked in their field full-time while going to school part-time to earn their master's degree. They know what it's like and can offer relevant personal support to help along the way."
"My degree paved the way for my advancement. If I had not taken classes, I may not have been able to progress to the point I am now. I have recently taken on the responsibility for the entire service business in North America."
Curry College stood out because Galloway was able to transfer his military credits to apply toward his degree. He also liked the convenience of the class schedules, which fit into his busy schedule. "The evening classes were good. The classes were with working professionals, so work and life experience came into play in the curriculum."
Sydney Lowe '98 may not have taken the most traditional path in securing a bachelor's degree from Curry College. But after locking up a spot as the Manager of Broadcasting Operations for Major League Baseball Network, she doesn't have any regrets.
