Jason Deger, environmental sciences | Oregon State Ecampus

The path that I took to get into the National
Parks Service, I feel like I wouldn’t have been able to do that if I didn’t have the
Ecampus experience. Starting from a young age, my dad would take
me backpacking and I just fell in love with being out in the outdoors and especially seeing
these park rangers and doing my junior ranger programs and I kinda idolized those figures. Out of high school, I went right into the
Coast Guard. I didn’t have the opportunity to pay for college
at that point, but I wasn’t going to give up that dream of being that park ranger. I found that with travel I needed an Ecampus
type of environment, and so I came to OSU and talked to their veterans department. They were absolutely amazing with making sure
all my payments were on time, making sure I had the support that I needed. This, it’s always been a dream of mine. I’m the first person in my family to ever
earn a degree. And all those people that have helped me along
this way, to get to this point, they’re all celebrating with me. I’m really happy for this opportunity.
