    Graduation!

    I am 29, partied way too hard my first few years of college and never graduated.

    Tonight I did my last assignment and had my final class after 4 years taking classes at Simpson. It consisted of 2 or 3 nights per week of classes from 5:30 to 9:30. Some weekend courses and working full time with no summers off.

    I just wanted to say, I AM SO HAPPY TO BE DONE!!!!

    Just braggin about something I hadn't gotten done when I should have!! I should be drinking!

    As somebody who went a little non-traditional as well, trust me when I say I can totally understand your relief. Best of luck to you!

    Yep, 3 years in and out, got a .067 my first semester at ISU, after a year at a community college and a semester at UNI, then 3 years of construction, a year at my job and 4 years later I have a degree. Not the route I would suggest, but I am done. Got the piece of paper and wouldn't change a thing, I wouldn't have the friends and wife I do had I done it the right way!

    Only had 1 professor younger than me the past 4 years, but some were pretty close. Good call by you though!

    Thanks, it was a long haul, but you appreciate it more when you are working too, took some saturdays my first year and missed some tailgates. Never took any Saturday classes after that!

    Re: Graduation!

    Congrats. I finish up my MBA program in 2 weeks and I walk across the stage at the iWireless Center in Moline on Mothers' Day.
