Were you surprised by anything in the program?
I was actually very surprised with how much interaction that we had with our classmates. I never thought that with an online class that you would make friends and interact with one another. Even though I live in Pennsylvania I still keep in touch with many students that I have met through the classes.
Any advice for prospective students?
While in the program make sure you have a planner and write everything in it such as assignments, tests, due dates of discussions, etc. so you are always prepared and are never late on assignments.

I chose DMU because I thought that the curriculum was very reasonable and the program fit my life’s agenda which made it possible for me to work and go to school at the same time.
My career objectives would to become a health educator and work for Red Cross or American Cancer Society and eventually go to further education to get my doctorate and become a professor for public health classes.
