Online HDFS Bachelor’s Degree – Student Story: Bethany P.


I’m Bethany Perez and I graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Human Development and Family Studies online. I got engaged, got married moved three times, all while going through my degree completion at CSU and it totally was helpful to do online because just me and the two kids and then my newborn for six weeks and still, you know all my professors were super helpful My son was diagnosed with autism and so that was like a six-month period of his evaluations and doctor’s appointments, like two or three times a week The online degree program just helped me to do school when it was convenient for me as I started to learn more about autism and get into more my son be needing therapies and meeting all these people that you know, help change our lives for the better I thought that maybe this is what I should do. Now, I’m a family care provider and I provide in-home day care for families of the Air Force. A lot of what I took from my Human Development and Family Studies degree is applied everyday I’m able to stay home with my seven month-old and not have to send her to daycare and also be there for my son to help him and whatever way I can I like canvas because it was easy to navigate understand. I think it was nice to be able to view your entire semester you know in one spot so you had the opportunity to look at everything look at lectures, look at what was going to be due, look at your grades. We had group projects, so it was nice to actually be able to work with somebody and coordinate our schedules and everything to be able to work on the product together. I graduated in May, all my kids were there and the newborn baby and everything so it was nice to have everyone’s support to actually receive my degree and walk across the stage was really exciting and I was proud of myself to be able to you know put all this hard work into something and for it to pay off.
