Carol Harcarik is a SMLR student, pursuing a degree online in Labor and Employment Relations (LER). The online program's flexibility is allowing her to achieve her dreams.

"I love going to school online; it is enabling me to get my degree from Rutgers while I live in Wisconsin. It is convenient and has been a fascinating experience. The high point was my course with Professor Paula Voos, when I was negotiating a union contract and actually became an avatar on my computer and was able to move around as someone would in reality. It was amazing and my grandchildren were so impressed they told me they thought I was 'awesome.' "
