Team Bravo (Forf - Nels)
Excelsior College is right for you because we offer a learning community that provides convenient, state-of-the-art online delivery of quality academic programs for the non-traditional student. I received my Master's Degree through a distance learning program and am confident that all students receive a quality education that prepares them to enter or progress in their chosen career path.
The greatest thing about Excelsior College is the flexibility of our degree programs. Excelsior College students have the ability to achieve their educational goals by taking examinations for credit or completing our innovative online courses while balancing their commitments at work and home.
"The only way to finish is to start"
I am entering my fifteenth year working in higher education and my tenth with Excelsior College and I can honestly say that I have never been more driven as a professional. When you believe in an institution as I believe in Excelsior, it is easy to come to work every day with a smile on your face. I feel motivated knowing that I have helped our learners reach their educational potential. Excelsior College is able to effectively serve various populations because of the flexibility we provide that is ‘paving the way' for the future of higher education.
Many of our students have limited experience with distance or online learning that often causes feelings of trepidation. I make a conscious effort everyday to ease these anxieties in whatever way that I can. One message I commonly convey to my students is that "you are not alone!" Excelsior College has a fantastic staff eager to assist you with all things pertinent to your educational aspirations. The collaborative efforts of Excelsior's staff combined with the values expressed in our institution's mission truly make Excelsior College special.
"Your Time Has Come to Shine, all Your Dreams are on Their Way"
-Simon and Garfunkel
My motto has always been, "Pay It Forward."
I believe one of the greatest rewards in life comes from making a positive impact on another life in some way, even if it's in the simplest way. I can say that many of my accomplishments and happiness have come from the people who contributed to making a difference in my life. When you have people who believe in you, you become motivated to succeed as an individual and in return reciprocate the same positivity and kindness on to others in your personal life, and through your work.
I used to think these people were just my friends and family, but I've learned over the years that even a complete stranger can see something in you that you don't recognize in yourself. Sometimes the recognition and support of others helps you to see what you are really capable of.
I feel Excelsior College offers a unique opportunity, one that works to customize education to the students needs. Excelsior College provides the flexibility of earning a degree without hindering a student from fulfilling the responsibilities of everyday life. We recognize the objective of our students, that you shouldn't have to compromise the value of your education or your personal responsibilities. In today's changing world, one must sustain both and Excelsior College can provide just that. An Admissions Counselor provides support and encouragement to students as they take on the journey to reaching their goals and fulfilling their passions.
A passion to me is something that you invest a lot of your energy into. My passion is my artwork and love for fitness. I'm certified in Pilates and also help to promote wellness and healthy lifestyles through my role on Excelsior College's Wellness Committee.
As an admissions counselor, I find pleasure in helping our students move forward with what they are most passionate about. The most gratifying part of my job is listening to our student's stories, their aspirations and the success that comes from what motivated them to reach their goal.
The longer you live, the move you realize the impact of attitude on life. The remarkable thing is that we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the past. We cannot change the inevitable. Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it. We are, ultimately in charge of our attitudesCharles R. Swindoll
