Going to School While Deployed?

Thaddeus Coe recently shared this in our Online Student Commons about taking online classes while being deployed:

“I will say that I’ve been fortunate to attend online courses while currently on deployment. For me, I’ve learned to balance my workload with my current assigned duties as an Executive Officer. It’s a little difficult in the beginning because you’re trying to figure out a routine and find what works best for you and your schedule. Things to include such as (Time to complete discussions, assigned papers, and reading material). I believe being able to enroll into online courses while on deployment can help pass the time while you’re away from the family and keep you mentally focused as well. That’s my point of view.”
