"Strayer University Provides Personalized Attention to Military Students"
"I am a soldier currently serving overseas in Operation Iraqi Freedom. I am also a single mother and I never thought I could handle classes in addition to my other responsibilities. When I researched the educational opportunities available to the military, I found Strayer University. My admissions officer was able to guide me through the military Web site to help me with my tuition assistance and answer all of my questions. Because of this personal attention, especially to a student located so far away, how could I have chosen another school? I am here in Iraq, serving my country, doing what I have trained to do, and getting my education. I still have a way to go before I finish my degree, but with the support that I receive from Strayer University, I know I can do it."

"Online Classes Make it Possible to Complete my Degree"
"After serving in the United State Air Force, I earned my associate's degree just weeks before my retirement from active duty. Though my wife and I moved around a lot, I managed to take some college-level courses at three different schools before speaking with an admissions officer at Strayer University. This was the best move I could have made for my education. My advisor helped me pull together all the courses, tests, and military classes I had taken that would count toward my Bachelor's degree, and we set up a plan for me to finish by taking online classes. Two years later, at the age of 48, I became a college graduate this June!"

"Daughter Encourages Mom to Go Back to School"
"After being laid-off from a position I had held for eight years, I struggled with odd jobs to make ends meet. One day, I was talking with my daughter about going back to school to brush up on my skills, and she encouraged me to go for it! After learning about Strayer University on the Internet, I decided to enroll. Since then, I have had a tremendously rewarding experience at Strayer University. The diverse curriculum has allowed me to acquire knowledge from several different subjects and disciplines. I have set and achieved short-term goals through learning and utilizing time-management skills. Strayer University has also helped me to re-evaluate my career goals. I will have an Associates degree in 2008 and I expect to earn my Bachelors degree in 2009. Being a part of the Strayer family has truly been an uplifting experience."

"Earning My Degree One Class at a Time"
"I have been a self-taught programmer designing Web sites and working for several companies since I was 15 in various programming jobs. It has been about six years since the last time I had been in school, but now I am enrolled in Strayer University's Bachelor's of Science in Information Systems with an emphasis in Web Development program. My decision to continue pursuing my degree was due to the generous offer by my employer to reimburse me for my tuition, and various conversations with my boss who had just completed his degree through Strayer University. I hope to take things slowly at first, focusing only on one course per quarter to ensure a proper work, life, and school balance. I have been thoroughly impressed with the transition into Strayer University, both from an academic as well as an administrative stand point. My professors and campus staff have been very responsive and have made pursuing my degree 100% online very successful so far."

"Business Owner and Father Earns Second Degree at Strayer University"
"My MBA in Management will be the second degree I have earned from Strayer University. I see this advanced degree not only as a personal goal, but also a business development tool for my success. Even though having four children under the age of four makes my days long and hectic, I still devote about 10-15 hours per week to my schoolwork. Strayer University helps me get through the everyday challenges of balancing work and family to make my dream of earning my MBA degree a reality."
–Thomas Melton, MBA: Management, Glen Allen, VA
"Busy Mom Balances Work, School, and Family"
"I am part of a growing population that started back to school later in life. I am 34 years old and have a full-time job and am going to school part-time. This in itself is challenging, but I also have three young children who crave a lot of my attention. It takes a lot of dedication to participate in online courses to make sure the work gets done correctly and on time. I chose Strayer University's online classes because of the variety and Strayer University's track record for business courses. Thank you for implementing online courses into your curriculum and giving working moms like me a chance for an education and a better life for our families."
–Tina Kramer, Associate in Arts in Business Administration, Wausau, WI
"Advanced Degree Allowed this Alumna to Become Her Own Boss"
"As a Strayer University student, I decided to pursue a degree program that would afford me the opportunity and education to start my own business. I strategically mapped out my classes in key areas that would help me pursue a career in marketing communication after graduation. I am now the president and CEO of my own consulting company, and I'm proud to say that we've recently won a government contract. Thanks to Strayer University, my education didn't just stop at receiving my degree - my education is being utilized in my business ventures."
