My favorite aspect of UCLA Extension was the diversity in the classroom—there were burgeoning pre-professional students, career-driven professionals, and retirees alike, all possessing the common goal to enrich their own lives and the lives of others. Shared experiences from the varied perspectives in the classroom truly enhanced my learning experience. Initially, I had thought that going back to school while working full time would be difficult. Now, it’s something that I look forward to!
