Trident University International: Flexibility
00:05 Speaker 1: One of the things I love about Trident University is their flexibility.
00:08 Speaker 2: Flexibility.
00:09 Speaker 3: Flexibility.
00:10 Speaker 4: Flexibility.
00:11 Speaker 5: The flexibility.
00:11 Speaker 6: Flexibility of the program. As part of my job, I had to travel around to several different states, several different countries and this afforded me the opportunity to take my program with me and work it wherever I went.
00:24 S1: I was able to work from home and work fulltime. And my fulltime job up in Seattle and it’s just the online forum allowed me to do both and that’s what I was looking for in an online school.
00:36 S2: I was able to study at my own leisure. Yes, I had deadlines. I had many competing demands in my life, but that’s how Trident works. Always allowing you time to finish your studies.
00:47 S3: I chose Trident University for the flexibility and also to be able to be in a diverse classroom with different people who have different professions but all share the same passion as I do.
00:57 S4: There was times that my unit and I would have to be out in the field for a month at a time, sometimes a little bit longer, and I would communicate with the educators to let them know my unique situation but also to let them know that I didn’t want to stop learning given my circumstances. So what I would wind up doing sometimes is just getting on to the portal and downloading all of the course content for the entire module, printing it off. And there’s nights that we would go out and do a mission and I would come back to my tent and I was there with my little headlamp while everyone was trying to get some sleep and just going over the course material with my highlighter. I would communicate with my chain of command sometimes when I had to turn in homework and try to get a few hours to go and run over to the library on post or something to turn in a homework assignment. So that flexibility while being in the military was really a key to me graduating today.[music]
