Now, Paul is working toward his degree in computer science. He’s yet to get a single ‘B’ and his 4.0 GPA means he made the President’s List this past semester. He says his decision to study computer science was an easy one.
“I’m just so interested in it,” Paul said. “I don’t necessarily find it difficult, because it’s just something I love doing. When you find something you love doing, like I love working on computers, you really don’t think it’s that hard!”
Though it’s his own hard work that’s driving Paul’s success, he also appreciates the flexibility that comes with going to school online.
“I can work at my own pace,” Paul said. “I know I have certain things due on certain days, like this essay needs to be ready on Sunday – and I can see all that at the start of the semester, which allows me to schedule time for class and time for work easily.”
When he’s not busy working or going to school, Paul makes music. He’s a guy who spends a lot of time doing the things he loves and trying to better himself and his family along the way.
“With an education from LBU, you can go anywhere in the world and be proud of that degree on your resume,” Paul said. We agree, and we’re proud to be preparing associates for success at Walmart or wherever their degree takes them.
