We recently ask you to share your update, and Ed Pietrowicz, a 1983 initiate, was kind enough to share this proud moment in his life:

"I left EIU in the Spring of 1989 with one semester to complete for graduation," he says. "Most of my friends were gone and working, and it started to seem like I needed to get on with my life. I re-enrolled in online classes for the 2016 Spring semester and continued in the fall and following spring. After 28 years, I finally graduated. I attended the Spring 2017 ceremony."
