What does a TESU Degree/Diploma look like?

I agree. Even if it were in much smaller font, that'd be fine. Like:

Quote:
Thomas Edison State University
certifies that

John Smith
has graduated with
Bachelor of Arts
in Computer Science

I'm pretty sure that there are schools that do something like this.

While I wouldn't say that it is stupid (many prestigious and respectable schools do the same thing), I DO wish my major was on my physical diploma!  Big Grin

For the last few weeks I have been agonizing about adding an additional AOS to my BSBA-GM....but now that I know that none of it will show up ON my actual degree, I am not too keen on doing all of that extra work.  Big Grin

Part of the motivation for getting a degree, for me, is psychological and emotional.  Smile

Hello all!

I'm not trying to hijack the thread but I think TESU's degree is pretty sharp looking. Especially compared to the other big 3 schools. Charter Oak's degree coloring is very bland and they try to fit a lot of info on the paper. And Excelsior's degree looked awesome before they changed it. It looked official and professional. Now it just looks like they forgot to put a few things on the page. Maybe I should make a thread about this somewhere and post comparison pictures..

That would be a great topic!  I would like to see the differences myself!

I spend almost zero time looking at my degree. Even when I put it in a frame and put it up above my desk, I'll never look at it. I think the important thing is to know it's completed. Once I had it and was done, the actual piece of paper isn't really the important part.

It is nice to see every now and then though lol. My mood just brightens up just glancing at it.

And that's when you realize you are taking more daunting courses to get your Masters, you go from "brightened" to "gloomy" just like that... kidding! I look at the paper every time and remind myself, I'm going for another one!

Ahaha, I'm content though. It's nice just to have a bachelor's degree. It feels like a huge weight off my shoulders. I'm also excited that I just have two more courses left to complete my masters.
