What advice would you give to a current Empire State College student?
A school like ESC can really help you make that happpen. By using life experience, having such great freedomw, by combining the traditional education in some instances while working in the completely opposite and open way that ESC affords, there are not barriers that can keep you back from accomplishing not only a degree, but a real career and a rewarding life. It’s not for everyone of course, you have to be ready to be your own director, but for those willing to accept the challenge, the rewards are endless.
