StraighterLine Student Profile: Burlyce Logan
StraighterLine student Burlyce Logan is many things. She is a committed student, and an even more committed wife. She is a senior citizen. She is not a quitter. And another thing. Burlyce Logan is inspiring.
A little more than a year ago, she had only one college course to complete – Algebra – before she could earn her bachelor’s degree from The University of North Texas in Denton. But then some challenges arose. Her husband became ill and needed a series of operations. Burlyce was called to help arrange his medical treatment, and to care for him.
Burlyce thought that she would have to set aside her plans to complete her college degree. How could she spend time in a classroom until her husband recovered? But then some other students at The University of North Texas told her about StraighterLine. Burlyce went online to investigate, and enrolled in StraighterLine’s College Algebra course, which she has now completed.
“The course was perfect,” Burlyce says. “Because of my husband’s health problems, I had to do it at my own pace, and everything worked perfectly.”
She has applied to have her credits transferred to the University of North Texas and after the process is completed, she will have completed all the courses she needs to earn her college degree. “And I am planning to take more courses,” she says.
“I am very grateful that StraighterLine was there to help,” she says.
“This course proved to be a perfect vehicle for me,” Burlyce says. “It’s a new day in American education and people should realize it . . . both the young and the old.”
