    May 10, 2021

    When he was in ninth grade, Kennesaw State University student Samuel Wolde’s parents moved their family more than 12,000 miles from Ethiopia to Minnesota to provide their children with better educational and career opportunities. “My parents left everything behind and sacrificed a lot to give us a better future,” said Wolde, who is now 25 years old. “Adjusting to the new culture, language, and this new world was challenging.” This week Wolde is set to earn a Master’s of Science in Information Technology (MSIT) without ever having to travel the 750 miles between Kennesaw and where he now lives in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. He credits the online program with providing the education he needs to advance his career, while fitting around his full-time work schedule.
