For busy, working adults, a flexible, competency-based online university like WGU is often the best bet for earning a degree—even, sometimes, for people who work at a traditional university. Chris Dann of Port Orange, Florida, was in just that boat.
WGU may be the perfect fit for adult learners, but even our students can be kids at heart. Take Brian Butt, a student from Riverton, Utah, earning his IT degree online at WGU. He lives playing video games and making things explode.
With a varied IT career background that has centered on being the link between customers and the more-techie insiders, WGU mentor David Grandpre has brought that critical experience to his role helping students working toward their online IT degree.
