Roberto Ramirez - Multimedia Technologies - Web Design - Associate's

Attending Rasmussen Online has been a real privilege for me. This is my second Associate's degree; having received one for Advertising Design in 1986, and now my current Associates in Web Design & Multimedia Technologies. My future goals are to take the design knowledge I have acquired over the years and blend them with the capable tools of today's digital landscape. Starting my career from image creation has now progressed into creating business assets using my road tested design skills in conjunction with programming languages and web applications. I would like to thank my loving wife and beautiful daughter for hanging in there with me through all the "I don't have time now" and "I'll get to it later" moments. And most importantly, I would like to thank God for this immeasurable opportunity he had provided for me.

Ruth Dyson - Information Systems Management - Database Administration - Associate's

Ruth thanks her mom for giving her the quiet time she needed and for not complaining about it. Ruth thanks her husband, Bobby for being understanding when she came home from work and went straight to homework, for eating late dinners and not complaining when I came to bed at 2 or 3 in the morning. Ruth thanks her stepdaughter for reading a few pages to her even though she did not understand what she read. For the rest of my children thank you for the "contests" we had to see who would have the best grades. Finally, I thank my family as a whole for all the encouragement and help you gave me during this long journey. I love you all and I owe you all a great big dinner and lots of hugs and kisses. Now it's time for the job search to begin paying back the loans!
