Takami from Japan. "This is the style in which I love to study: Every day, I write essays in Japan's crazy and packed commuter trains. After work, at the beach near my home, I would read textbooks while enjoying the view of a beautiful sunset and Mount Fuji. Only virtual college would allow for such a fun style, don't you think? On another note, the reason I study at virtual college is, that as a Japanese living in Japan, while working as a teacher, I can still obtain an American education. Day in and day out, I receive information and motivation from my classmates located across the oceans.”
Kelsie from Louisiana. “Second Generation FHSU Virtual College Student”
"I work full time as an Office Manager at an Electrical Company owned by my mother who also attended FHSU Virtual College. She bragged about the awesome experience that she had while attending FHSU so I decided to give it a shot as well. When things start to slow down at my job, I have time to do my school work (Props of working with family). FHSU Virtual College suits my life style and give incredible flexibility along with an excellent education!"
Felix from New York. "The first few weeks of virtual college at FHSU was very difficult as I had to adjust my daily schedule to make time to study and complete my homework, especially having two jobs. As time passed by, I gained confidence and now able to manage between working extended hours and studying. It is so convenient and flexible. Pursuing my master's program as a virtual college student at FHSU, in all honesty, has been a rewarding experience."
Laura - "I am from Pennsylvania. Currently I work as a high school Spanish teacher - with American children at an American high school in the UK. I live in a cute, medieval town called Bury St. Edmunds and I am in my second semester of a Masters in Instructional Technology. Most times, I do my work at cafés in my neighborhood since when I am home and seated, my dog Potter wants to be on my lap! Studying and teaching full time has its challenges, for sure, but I am enjoying being a student again. My motto for class is one that I try to take home as well: todo es posible = anything is possible!"
Sarah from Michigan.
" I first chose FHSU Virtual College because it was more affordable than the school where I lived, and I did not want to move to Hays just to attend school. After being an active part in the Virtual College, I have grown to absolutely love virtual distance learning! I am able to customize my schedule from week to week which allows me to do more things that I love (such as travel, do photography, and explore the beautiful state I live in) all while earning a degree. Virtual education has had such a positive impact on my personal growth - the advisers and teachers truly encourage you to learn and grow both in school and outside. People who think a virtual education is purely independent are wrong - Fort Hays is a great institution if you want a feeling of inclusion!"
Corrie from Nevada. "When I'm not doing my schooling, you can find me at the racetrack running my motorcycle.
I was raised in Overland Park,KS so i always knew of FHSU but found the virtual college when my local State school became impossible to get the correct classes I needed to fulfill my degree, after taking 10 years off of college to race cars professionally."
John from Pennsylvania.
"I am a proud virtual student at FHSU! For years, I've wanted to go to college, and financial issues always kept me from doing this. In the spring of 2016 my wife finally talked me into looking into doing something more as I had been a nurse aide since I was sixteen-years-old, and the wear-and-tear on your body as you get older just gets to be too much. Psychology has always been my main love in life, so I started out on a web search to see what virt...ual schools offered the best programs. I found that Fort Hays had an incredible reputation for their psych courses. To those ends, I enrolled myself, found a tuition reimbursement program that defrays about 60% of the costs through my work place, and I haven't looked back since. I am currently finishing up my second semester; my freshman year. I am working full-time and going to school virtually full-time, so I did bite off a lot. However, in the end it'll be completely worth the time investment and work. More so, I have found something I am very proud to be a part of, which is Fort Hays. I am filled with school spirit, the likes I haven't been since I was in High School. I love listening to the games broadcast over KFHS streaming radio, reading the newsletters and updates from college, and just generally learning from all the great professors I've had so far. I haven't had a bad experience yet nor anticipate one. The college is top-notch, and everyone has been so great! I am confident that, in a few short years, I will be in possession of my bachelor of science, then my Master’s degree. This is my goal. Hey, at 45-years-old, it goes to show that you're *never* too old to go back. Grasp your future, and let Fort Hays be a part of that. It's something I know I'll never regret. GO TIGERS!"
Adam a helicopter pilot stationed in South Korea.
"My favorite thing about being a virtual college student is the flexibility and support to complete my Master’s degree wherever I am stationed while still being part of a great university."
