I am very thankful to have been part of the BAAS degree. It allowed me to continue my job in Richland Center as the Youth Services Librarian at Brewer Public Library. It also allowed me to have significantly more family time without worrying about commuting to classes. The degree prepared me to apply for graduate school. I just received word that I was accepted in UW-Milwaukee, where I hope to earn a master's in Information and Library Science with an emphasis in serving children. This degree was one of the best decisions for my education that I haveï¿½ï¿½made and I encourage any adult who is considering finishing their bachelor's degree to look into this option.
