We love hearing from our students!

Good afternoon BGSU e-Campus team,

As I finish up my last week of courses within the Management and Technology program and prepare for graduation, I wanted to reach out and thank you for all your support this past year. Getting my bachelor's degree was always a goal of mine and being a first-generation student, I am so excited to be able to highlight my accomplishment to my friends, family, colleagues and especially my two young boys.

Being out of school for eight years, your team made the transfer and transition easy and seamless. The coursework was great and relevant to my profession, and I will certainly be sharing my positive experience with others.

Thank you again for your support and guidance.

-Krysten Sarrouh - BS in Technology | Management and Technology
