Hi everyone. You can call me Cjunior. I recently joined Saylor Academy and enrolled in Introduction to Business and a few other courses. I am using these courses learn new material and as a refresher course for classes I had taken a quite while ago. I love this site so far and I am excited to learn as much as I can. I am hoping to see more classes added soon.

I guess most would call me a “late bloomer!” I celebrated my 59th birthday in October, and decided to gift myself with the present of a formal education; continuing education really, as I have 27 college credits at City Colleges of Chicago.

I am a widow, and I have two wonderful service animals who share my space with me. I prefer the company of animals, four-legged ones primarily. I also like plants and minerals, fresh air and sunshine, star gazing, and being aware of what is up there.

I will be enrolling in Moral and Political Philosophy. I cannot wait to get started… Alexandria Hammer

Hello! I signed up for saylor.org when I was struggling in my graduate program a few years ago. I have since exited and am now constructing a homeschool curriculum for my son. I plan to use the courses available here, especially for CS and business. The site feels much smoother than it did when I first signed up. I like the improvements. Anyways, I look forward to exploring the offerings and improving my computer programming skills.

Hello Saylor Community, My name is Lakechia Polk. I’m a paralegal by trade and have decided to further my education online. I’m a mother with a limited income and a very busy schedule, so I really appreciate being able to take classes on Saylor. Thanks for the opportunity.

Hello, my name is Founder. Well, that is not my real name but I value my privacy and like to keep a small digital footprint.

Many of you may know that there are several online opportunities to obtain a college level education. Saylor Academy was chosen mainly because it provides a cirrculum based education that can’t be found without paying high tuition. (Trust me, I have searched)

The reason I am pursuing a college education is because I am in the process of starting a small business and in order to have any credibility with investors, future partners, or even customers, I feel it is important to have a background in business in order to be able to “talk the talk.”

A story is starting to be told. It involves an entrepreneur who was not able to complete a college education earlier in life. Who succeeded in a career that provided little fulfillment but is taking that experience and embarking on a journey to do something great for society.

I am sharing this information because I believe that anyone who makes the commitment to embark on independent effort to obtain an online educational background has drive and passion. These are the people that I choose to learn with and possibly develop a future partnership.

What a great story this shaping up to be. I look forward to learning with you.

Welcome, all!

@icefox55 , if you should encounter problems watching some of the Art:21 videos (blocked in the UK), there are some very good suggestions for alternatives and workarounds in this thread: ARTH101: Discussion Topic 4, Art21
