Online Student Spotlight - Bennie Brown

Bennie Brown

How are online classes making it possible for you to keep working towards your degree?

I work in a production environment that requires more than just 40hr/ week. Working long hours makes it very hard to attend normal classes. The OBBA program has made it possible for me to attend classes no matter the hours my job requries.

What did you like the most about online classes?


What is the most important benefit offered by online classes?

Being able to work and go to school.

How do you balance work, family and school?

It is challenging, however if you are disciplined and determined you can do it. I have a great family that motivate and encourage me to keep going.

What advice do you have for future Owls considering FAU?

Don't think about what could go wrong. Think about the possibilities when everything works out. You can do this, I did!
