Kristin Stamulis is a self-described adventurer, traveling the globe with her family.
She was a licensed respiratory therapist in the state of Washington and was pursuing a degree in Wilmington University’s Health Sciences program when her husband accepted a three-year international assignment in England.
Despite a five-hour time difference, Stamulis was able to complete her coursework remotely from her home outside London and participate in group projects online.
“When every other member of the group is at least five hours behind me, it means I may be in for a long night’s work,” she says. “However, I do not feel that the amount of time spent collaborating on group projects was much different than what I would expect if I were residing in America.”
Stamulis said the support she received from WilmU made all the difference.
“The faculty of the Health Science program has been fantastic in terms of communication, personal interest, and encouragement. Every faculty member worked diligently to ensure the best possible chance of success on my journey,” she says. “The WilmU online learning program through Canvas has been phenomenal. It is easy to navigate, and I have rarely encountered any issues.”
Dr. Angela Herman, chair of Health Sciences in the College of Health Professions, said Kristin’s success proves that distance learning is a viable solution for dedicated students around the globe.
“Kristin is an excellent student and I very much appreciate the challenges she faced during her commitment to completion of this degree,” she says.
