Class of 2016
I was working as an instructional designer for several years when I decided to broaden my skills and have more options professionally. When comparing Boise State’s OPWL program offerings with other universities, Boise won. Course offerings were diverse, relevant to the industry, and aligned to my needs and interest.
Because of my work schedule, I took one class per semester and this enabled me to have a balanced life. Classes were challenging, yet manageable and even though this program was not in a traditional classroom setting, group projects gave me the opportunity to collaborate with other students. I still maintain a friendship with one of my teammates.
Now, I am in a manager position and I thank Boise for the confidence, knowledge, and skills that make me a valuable leader.
