By Amanda Schaal, Northwood University alumna
Coming from different colleges in the past, I knew that I wanted to be able to earn my associate degree as well as my bachelor’s degree. Macomb made this incredibly easy through their University Center. Northwood University was one of the universities offering programs at Macomb’s Center Campus. I knew I needed to apply so I could obtain my degree in Entertainment, Sports and Promotions Management.
Throughout my time with both educational institutions, I was able to work and get a jump start on my career through practicums, internships and real business leaders as my professors. They made it easy to work and attend school by offering online courses and in-person classes one day a week. I even saved on tuition by being able to still attend Macomb and Northwood at the same time!
If you think you will miss out on “college life,” you are wrong. I made friends and memories that will last a lifetime. I was even given a Northwood advisor on campus who helped create a personalized degree plan for me. When I was ready to take an even bigger leap into my career, they made it easy to switch my major to be able to have all online courses and still earn my degree on time! I am now part of two fantastic alumni networks, and I could not be happier or more successful in my current endeavors.
