It sure has been a while since i’ve posted but here we are and I am excited to share that I made the leap into the final half of my Bachelors Degree and its been a long time coming! I have picked my major in Cyber Security. This choice took a while and what I mean by a while is that it took years!

There are many positives that have come from me taking so long in choosing a major after getting certifications in a few industries and even minoring in Economics along the way. The Cyber Security field has grown exponentially in the years I spent taking course after course another lost soul in the community college world . It was by pure luck that a degree program was being created in the background for this awesome field.

On a busy day in September while making plans with my accounting tutor I started asking myself why was I still here in community college? Why am I in Accounting class again? The question in my mind was there has to be another way to get a degree in Computer programming or a related field that does not require these classes and 2 years of calculus and can still produce a quality degree in a related field. So I researched for days and stayed up late at night comparing programs, length of programs, quality of schools, credibility of the programs, and jobs I could attain upon graduating. Let us not forget that the biggest goal of them all was to finally finish my Bachelors degree.

The process of picking my school applying to 6 schools and getting accepted in the first 2 Universities was less than 2 weeks. The remaining 5 schools took up to 3 weeks to send me my acceptance letters. The school i’ve chosen is Champlain College. This school is a private not for profit school that has been around since 1878 and is based in Vermont. I chose this school because of its selectiveness in acceptance, small student population, and a program backed by Homeland Security, NS3, and NSA as a center of excellence.


I start on this part of my journey today. Class officially starts on Monday but I will give myself a head start. My first two classes are Networking Fundamentals and Intro to Computer Systems. All of my remaining classes are 7 weeks and accelerated. So if you cannot get a hold of me you know you an find me somewhere snuggling up with a coffee and my laptop working hard as a new Champlain College Beaver.
