What does achieving honors or high honors in college mean to you? What do you do to achieve this goal?
That is what we asked students at Globe University-Madison West who earned High Honors and Honors during the Winter 2013 quarter.
“Study hard and make the best use of your time that you have and tap into the resources available at Globe to be successful,” shared Eric Olds, student in the massage therapy program.
Danielle Zander, a veterinary technology student, said, “I’m in a field that captures my attention and I have a job at a vet clinic so I can relate back to it while I’m at work and if I have any questions, my work can help answer them. Getting out in your field and getting your foot in the door helps a lot, at least for me.”
Todd Grauvogl is a student in the health fitness specialist program. He said, “It’s quite simple: show up for class every day and study. Get your homework done. If you are able to change your work schedule so it could accommodate your school schedule, that will help you focus on school. Scheduling your classes so you can be at school when you need to works. If you are passionate about what you are doing and why you are here, it shouldn’t be that difficult to follow up on it.”
Karla Dean, medical assistant program student, added, “What motivates me is that I want to have a good job in my field.”
“I want to show my kids that it can be done,” said Paula Zenz, medical assistant student. “I show them my A’s and tell them ‘You see what your mom does; you see what work I do. That’s how you learn.’ Setting an example for my kids motivates me.”
We want to congratulate the following Globe University-Madison West students who have achieved Honors and High Honors during the Winter 2013 quarter.
