At 17, everyone told me I needed to go to college. So, just like all of my friends, I visited a college campus.

It only took a single tour to realize college wasn’t for me.

I wanted to do so many things—get a full-time job, start my own company, travel, live on my own, and so much more. How could I do all of that while being locked into a four-year commitment, not to mention the $40,000 per year price tag?

So I decided not to enroll in college. Instead, I’d keep working towards everything else I wanted to do. I got a retail job, built a piano-teaching business, and lived on my own.

That’s when I discovered Unbound.

Unbound: The Start of the Rest of My Life

Unbound didn’t ask for a 4-year campus commitment. It didn’t come with an absurd 5-digit price tag. Instead, it offered me the chance to work toward my goals and earn my degree on the side. It was a no-brainer. I signed up immediately.

A short time later, Unbound became an unexpectedly large part of my life. I landed an unpaid internship at Lumerit to help build the student community. Using the skills I was learning in my marketing classes (I’m a marketing major), I helped plan and market the very first national student event for Unbound students. When that was over, the director of Student Life hired me.

The years that followed were filled with countless trips all over the country to run events designed to bring students together. Through this, I was able to enhance my book-learning with real hands-on marketing experience and build a relationship with my now-husband.

Fast-forward to now.... continue reading

Make sure you ask for your Yellow House Book Rental discount when you enroll and save up to $300.

Unbound has been a wonderful money saver for my children! Three of my four children have benefited from the Unbound program (My first one would have too, had I know about it back then.) My middle two children were able to/ or will graduate college in three years. With Unbound, they were able to take dual credit classes, and test out of college courses through CLEP and DSST tests their senior year of high school. My youngest is taking the Navigate program through Unbound and will have 6 credits by the end of this year, her high school, junior year.

Enjoying the journey,
