by Sessions Staff | December 30, 2013

On Monday December 23rd, 2013, the following Associate of Occupational Studies (AOS) degree students completed their program requirements. On behalf of faculty and school administration we congratulate these graduates for their many achievements in the program.

Hiba Abugosh, Associate of Occupational Studies in Web Design
Living in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Hiba Abugosh couldn’t find a program she liked at local universities, so she enrolled at Sessions College, first graduating with an AOS in Graphic Design in Spring 2013, then blazing through her AOS in Web Design to become one of Sessions College’s first dual major graduates!

Throughout her program, Hiba’s talent and positive attitude has been noticed by faculty and staff, and her high quality work has already led to a design job in the Kingdom.

Commented Hiba in a recent interview:  “Studying online as an international student has been a much more satisfying experience than I originally expected. It’s pretty interactive and the instructors are always available and ready to answer my questions. Everyone at Sessions has been very supportive and welcoming and I feel as if I know them all really well, despite having never met in person.”

Donald Apted – Associate of Occupational Studies in Web Design
Retired military serviceman Donald Apted from Georgia enrolled in the AOS program in January 2012 to “get gain a better foundation in Web Design that will enable me to start a Web Design business.” After six semesters, Donald graduated with an AOS Degree in Web Design and with a body of work that shows his interactive skills.
