I wanted a full time job doing what I love.

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:

my family, friends and coworkers.

west coast, east coast and abroad.

What I liked best about online learning was:

being able to do all of my school work and attend class in the comfort of my home, sometimes wearing my pjs!

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

meeting people from around the world who had the same passion for libraries and books.

I plan to use my degree to:

get a full time job as a children's librarian.

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