Congratulations to Sarah Gebert, a history major, on her graduation this weekend! Gebert’s graduation is special: it will be the first time she steps foot on the UCF campus. Completing her degree entirely online, the North Carolina resident, who is married to a Marine and had to be ready to move at any time, says UCF’s courses gave her the ability to remain mobile and study on the go.

“The online learning platform at UCF helped me develop vital organizational and time-management skills as well as giving me an education in using online research tools,” she says.

She credits three of her online instructors and their involvement for her success: Hong Zhang (History of Chinese CivilizationsThe History of Modern China), Kenneth Hanson (Biblical Archaeology, Jewish View of Jesus) and Lori Waters (U.S. Space History, Cold War Homefronts, History of the Future).
