Long and Winded Road

May 19, 2006 at 12:38 PM | Posted in Personal | 9 Comments
Starting in 1983:
6 credits from Kaskaskia community college (now called something else)
9 credits from SIU-Carbondale (out of 24 that I took)
65 hours at St louis comm college (out 106 attempted)
Out of 136 attempted hours, I finished and passed 80.  Of those 80, 65 apply towards my degree.  Actually more, because my two 5 hour calc classes surplant the two three-hour math requirement.
My GPA went from a 1.4 when I flunked out in 1986 to a 3.5.  I just got my grades for this sememster,A’s in both classes.  I was on the Dean’s list.  Since I’ve been back, nothing but A’s.
 
Tonight, I graduate.
