Hi all,

First thread I've ever started here. I've been a long time member, but I rarely post. Anyway, I'm interested in what, if any post secondary education RedsZoner's have.

I myself am a recently transferred Electrical Engineering major at Wright State University. I was formerly an Engineering Technology major at Miami University but I decided to switch since I wanted a EE degree.

After I get my bachelor's, I don't know if I'll pursue any further education or not. If I do, I'm not sure whether that would be an MBA or a EE Master's Degree. But I have time for that.

How about you guys?

Sport Business with a minor in Business Administration from The Mount Union College.

Not sure if a master's would help my career all that much, but may go back for Sports Admin or Business Admin down the road

One year, Duns Scotus College, Southfield, MI (now defunct)
One year at UC, plus some night school and other scattered courses (last one around 1980).

Keep thinking I'll go back. I think I'm a junior and when I last inquired, someone at UC's admission office looked at my transcript and said none of my credits were "fragile" (which means they'd still apply today).

Someday I may go back just to say I've done it. My daughter works at UC and I told her to ask if parents get to go free when their kids work there. No dice.

I've had my own business for 30 years this year, a company my dad started that I took over in 1979.

This is all awesome stuff guys. I can't believe my first created thread got this many replies.

Let me ask, what led you to pursue your respective fields of study?? Are you working in the same field you got your degree in? I know some people who work in entirely different industries than those which they majored in, I'm curious how common that actually is.

My love for sports led me to the journalism profession. I wanted to be a sportswriter. But in the year and a half since graduating, I've decided to take another path. The newspaper industry is a train wreck, and I just want and need something more stable, so that's why I'm going back for teaching. Not the most money in the world, but I love working with students, particularly high school, so I'm happy with my decision.

If you've never taken a class in Cooper Hall, you've never known how impossible it is to pay attention in class with the constant smell of Subway bread permeating the air.

That was the hardest obstacle for me to overcome. My stomach was always growling because of that smell.

A Masters in Life from the School of Hard Knocks, aka the US Army by way of Germany, Washington, DC, and numerous short term locations.

I graduated 2nd in my class from the Primary Leadership Development Course, Fort Knox, KY; Honor Graduate (1st in class) from the Basic Non-Commissioned Officer Course, Fort Gordon, GA; Honor Graduate from Air Assault School, Fort Rucker, AL; I've attended classes at USC, University of Maryland, and Park College toward a BS in Computer Science. I'm a USPA Certified Jumpmaster (expired...the cert, not ME!), Microsoft MCSA, Cisco CCNA, and I am currently maintaining a CISSP certification.

I work as a Network Engineer on contract to the government, but I think I'll be accepting a new job in Cyber Security as a Government Service worker soon. :pray: :thumbup:

What is John F. Kennedy University?

It's a small, private university in the Bay Area. I knew I wanted the sports component AND the doctoral degree, so I chose JFK's linked program, which gives you both degrees in only five years.
