The degree of

Master of Library and Information Science

Virtual Convocation


Current residence: Albany, CA, US

I wanted to earn a masters degree because:

I wanted the opportunity to move into a career with more responsibilities.

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:

My husband, my parents, and my two coworkers who were also in the program with me

While in the program, I met classmates from:

All over the US

What I liked best about online learning was:

Being able to make my own schedule and do the work on my own time.

What I enjoyed most about my experience at the SJSU School of Information was:

Learning about my classmates' perspectives on specific topics and how they differed from my initial perspective.

I plan to use my degree to:

Work in a library were I can make positive changes

Now that I have completed the program, I'm most looking forward to:

Taking a vacation!
