I was looking for an opportunity to go back to school. I have 4 children, am married, and was working so it could be complicated. I got a letter from Grand Valley that was looking for new, nontraditional students and the letter really hit home. I had already started a second degree in business and marketing years before and had stopped to have a family. This provided me the opportunity to go back.
