The degree of

I wanted to earn a masters degree because:

It gave me the opportunity to learn what I needed to do my job better.

While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:

My family and friends.

While in the program, I met classmates from:

All over the country.

What I liked best about online learning was:

The flexibility to learn at my convenience while working full time and caring for my family.

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

Learning about emerging technologies and the different perspectives of my peers.

I plan to use my degree to:

Become the best youth librarian I can be.

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

Taking a break from reading academic literature, and reading for pleasure. I can't wait to dive into the stack of books on my nightstand!
