|LIFELONG LEANER: Steven Rodriguez, pictured above speaking at|
our graduate reception, can't wait to begin his master's degree program
We often share advice to answer some of these tough questions here on the blog. However, we recently spoke with Steven Rodriguez, a 2007 alumnus of the College and one of the first students accepted into the inaugural graduate class, and he had some advice of his own for fellow adult learners: Don’t sell yourself short on the opportunity to earn your degree, and don’t get discouraged.
Steven knows a thing or two about balancing earning a college degree with the rest of life’s responsibilities. By day, he works at Southwest Airlines, and by night, Steven hosts his own Internet talk show, The No Notes Show LLC, ®, which is committed to educating listeners on local news, politics, and entertainment in a positive way. He also has a family to take care of. Steven earned his bachelor’s degree at Peirce while working full-time, and plans to return to Peirce College to earn his master’s degree in Organizational Leadership & Management as a working adult as well.
We wanted to share more of Steven’s story with you, so we asked him to sit down for a podcast to talk about his experiences and how Peirce has helped him achieve his life goals.
We're so glad Steven is continuing his education with a master's degree to improve his personal and professional life. Best of luck, Steven! If you have any questions for him, feel free to leave them in a comment below.
