About Joanne


  1. It was for me – I earned my BA, and later a Master’s in Computers.

  2. I have two associates from a local community college (Comp. Information Technology) and (internetwork technology (cisco)).

    A community college is a good place to start for most students, as they can get the core classes out of the way (Eng 101/102, poly sci/history/sociology/psych/econ/philosophy/math/science)…

    College costs have become so insane that most students are finding themselves drowning in debt by getting a degree which in many cases has a poor ROI (return on investment). See the story about the gal who has almost 190,000 in student loan debt (indentured servitude here folks).
