Student Spotlight: Blain Smith

Student Spotlight: Blain Smith
Blain Smith has a successful career as a computer engineer and IT systems programmer, including seven years as a programmer at Harvard University but he knew something was missing. “I went to the information session at Empire State and one of the first things that came out of the mouth of the woman who was running the session was, ‘You are an adult, parent, homeowner and professional first. Then you are a student,’” Smith said. “That convinced me I was in the right place.”

How did Empire State College help you shape your personal and professional goals?
Empire State College challenged me in ways I never knew possible. Having been out of school for more than 30 years I was very apprehensive that I wouldn’t be able to do the work or understand the process. Not only did it give me confidence to move forward, I was able to write about my life experiences and realized that my life and career were very important in shaping my future personal and professional choices.
