Our “Global Campus Legends” series celebrates the 30th anniversary of WSU Global Campus by putting a spotlight on the unique experiences and journeys of Global Campus students throughout the years. Each legend features a quote from student who graduated from Global Campus since it was founded as WSU Extended Degree Programs in 1992.   

“After graduating with an AA, I wanted to also get my BA. WSU Extended Degree Programs (EDP)—later changed to Distance Degree Programs (DDP)—was the solution for me with a young family and work. I loved the classes and the options available. My counselor Bobbi was wonderful and so helpful at getting the classes I needed and that were of interest to me. So, with four young kids and my husband’s help, I got my degree. I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in social sciences with a focus in psychology, human development, and criminal justice. While I never used it officially, it has helped—especially the psychology and human development—with raising my kids. It was a great experience and I’m so glad it was there. I will not miss the VCR tapes and all the mailing back and forth, but the degree was worth it.”
