Back to schoooooool!

Suddenly I found myself sitting in the cafeteria being coerced into registering for college.  Peer pressure, I guess, my coworker decided to enroll in two IT 16-week long online courses and within two minutes I had the college registrars on the phone.

My company pays for me to go to college, and I’ve always been a little computer geeky, so this will be a good opportunity to get some tech support recognition under my belt.  And for free!

Online college is no UConn — there will be no concerts or writing seminars, streaking through the halls at 3AM, underage drinking, or dining halls — but I am excited nonetheless.

Learning?  For free?  What is this phenomenon you speak of?

  1. Good for you Lauren!

    Broaden your horizons!

    Expand your mind!

    For FREE 🙂

  2. If you get stuck on anything give me a shout. Apparently I am quite good at explaining things that befuddle others.

    I am also far more than a geeky blogger in the real world… or so some people say.

  3. Good luck! I hope you have fun doing it even though there won’t be the real-life-school components. It’s funny that we both posted about free education at the same time. Sadly, the stuff I am learning will be completely undocumented. But knowing it is the important part, right?

  4. Speaking as someone that is gaining my entire undergrad (and Masters in the near future) for free…..you’re crazy not to go. Especially with your note taking/making mad skillz!!!
