NC eLearning Success Stories

Marie Blanchard

Marie Blanchard

Working Mom

Location: Raleigh
Degree / Program: Sociology

Sociology major Marie Blanchard leads a complex life.  A single mom with two school-age kids, Marie balances a number of demands on her time.  Like many modern moms, Marie juggles a 40-hour work week, the kids’ nightly homework and school events, cheerleading practice, along with her own undergraduate studies.  In the Blanchard household, study time is a family event.

Marie Blanchard is an NC State Achiever.  She completed 20 courses, or roughly 48% of her undergraduate studies, via online eLearning.  From courses delivered by videocassette to media-rich Internet-based classes, she has experienced NC State Distance Education in all its forms.  Now she owes a lot more to the time and place flexibility that makes eLearning the right choice for the modern learner.  Marie graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Sociology with a Criminal Justice concentration.  Not one to rest on her laurels, Marie plans to continue her education in graduate school.

“Working full-time and being a single parent does not leave me much time for attending classes on campus.  Through online eLearning, I can balance the demands of my job and time with my two daughters.  Without eLearning, I would not be able to finish my degree.
