            2003-2007, BA, Elementary Education, MBA, Marketing

            Roosevelt for a 40 year oldI had only 1 year of college from the 80s and RU helped transfer that credit and I got through my BA in ELED in 1.5 years. Then I achieved my MBA in Marketing in 1 year. The professors, staff and fellow students made the experience very enjoyable and enlightening. I then saw on the career board a volunteer opportunity at the Obama 08 HQ. I started answering phones and soon after was managing 18 State blogs, contributing to the Nat'l blog and many other items. After Obama won, I got paid speaking engagements in U.S. and Canada, and landed a job at Motorola as a blogger and then moved on to manage the Global publishing and many other activities here since 2009. Thanks RU.

            2009-2011, Master's, Integrated Marketing Communications

            Master of Science - Integrated Marketing CommunicationsI agree with Brent Levi's recommendation below. The IMC program at Roosevelt is definitely underrated. The instructors are seasoned veterans in the industry who still consult marketing services, or they still work in the industry and provide their real-life examples in the classroom. Mickey Brazeal, Dr. Schiller, Dorothy DeCarlo, Cindy Davis, Barbara Weaver, Mr. Azzaro...all great at what they do. Not only as teachers, but also as mentors and inspiration. I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't have my MSIMC. Not to mention, you get the opportunity to TRAVEL ABROAD even in a Masters program. I was lucky enough to go to France with my class for 10 days to learn about international marketing from worldwide agencies and French brands. For me, it was the perfect program because I was working full-time in Wisconsin and they offered Saturday classes. I drove every Saturday morning to Schaumburg or Chicago and knocked my classes out one hectic day/week

            1993-1995, BA

            I transferred to Roosevelt in my Junior year from Southern Illinois University, Carbondale because I decided an urban setting was more in tune with my changing goals. I attended both the Downtown campus as well as the Schaumburg campus with an easy commute living in between. I truly believe that every staff member of each campus took a genuine interest in my success as a student and were very careful in not letting me slip 'through the cracks' which is so common in other large institutions. I credit much of my researching and writing skills to my Roosevelt professors. This is a great city University but can be quite a cultural shock to students with no urban experience.
