    UC Student of the Month Archive - Lori Kwiwko

    Lori Kwiwko  

    My name is Lori Kwiwko and I am a current student in the Bachelor of Arts in General Studies program through Eastern Illinois University at Triton College. Three years ago, I was a returning student to Triton. When I walked into Triton on that first day to start my education again, I was very apprehensive and thought, “What am I getting myself into?” But it was one of the most positive experiences of my life. Going back to school was one of the hardest decisions that I have had to make, but was also one of the most rewarding. I started my new education experience with Dr. Richard Iaccino in Anatomy and Physiology and have never looked back. Along the way, I have met classmates that will be my friends for life. I have been taught by some amazing teachers that gave me a great foundation to further my education and I walked away with some great life experiences.

    When I graduated from Triton College, I knew that I wanted to continue my education even further. I looked into the University Center and connected with Jackie Johnson, advisor to Eastern Illinois University. We sat down and looked into what my needs and expectations were regarding completing my bachelor’s degree and knew that Eastern was the place for me. The apprehension and nervousness that I felt that first day walking into Triton has been replaced with a feeling of accomplishment as I get ready to graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree in General Studies in May and go onto graduate school.

    Triton prepared me to take that initial step of continuing my education and Eastern guided me throughout my higher education experience. Eastern’s online Bachelors of General Studies program showed me that it is possible to go back to school and finish that bachelor’s degree that was started years ago.
