Go back to school with Ivy Bridge College and enter to win a $1,000 tuition discount!

I was on the 7 year plan for college, and while I did finish my undergraduate degree I’ve thought about continuing my education further. Even if I don’t get a second degree to boost my career, I’ve thought about doing it just for personal reasons because I enjoy learning. I’ve taken a class here and there – not much more than that. Let’s be honest, with 2 little ones and one on the way, a traditional education is NOT going to happen.

Let’s face it, our schedules are crazy and tuition is expensive!

So what’s a Mom to do? How do you meet your goals of going back to school or furthering your degree while managing a household?

  1. I’d like to go back to school just so I can be more prepared when I go back to work after my kids are all in school.

  2. I’ve often wondered if I might like a business degree to open up even more opportunities for me!

  3. I am already in school – I have been since 2007 when my daughter was about 9 months old, but hubby needs to get his butt into gear and get back in school! This would definitely help!

  4. I want to go back to school so that I have something behind me when I re-enter the career world!

  5. I’m looking at some big changes in my life and I’d love to go back to school to help me find a job after being out of the job market for 5 + years.

  6. I would love to take another class this summer. An online class would definitely make this goal easier.

  7. Katrina Chessari says:

    I’d love to go back to school because I’ve been out of the workforce since 2007, and will remain out until all of my children are in school. A degree will be very important when I need to return to work.

  8. If I went back to school now, it would have to be online for sure.

  9. I am interested in learning more about the business field. And with 5 kids, it seems an online education would be my best choice at this point.

  10. All this info is so helpful. I need to get my butt back in school. I’m not getting any younger.

  11. Online classes are the best!
