Considering what’s next? UNO to host unique event to help further your professional career
By Tim Winters
Alex Bauer, 25, was graduating with an undergraduate degree in international studies when she attended (an earlier) Graduate School Expo.
She said she was thinking of working toward an advanced degree in public administration and found it helpful to get information about other graduate programs.
Talking with professors and especially other students at the expo who also would be in public administration classes reassured her about her choice and the “best fit” for her.
Bauer now works as a research and evaluation associate at the Sherwood Foundation in Omaha.
Her graduate degree, she said, helped set her apart from others who had similar backgrounds but did not have an advanced degree. She also gained valuable experience while working as a graduate assistant.
Bauer said she looked at similar graduate programs at other universities. But after weighing the pros and cons of those programs, “I couldn’t justify paying more” for what she could get at UNO.
She praised the affordability of UNO and said she was able to graduate debt-free.
