Engineering student who is grandmother will study in Switzerland
May 18, 2018
Starting another degree three decades after being in a college classroom would be difficult for anyone.
For Andrea Schwallier, pursuing a second bachelor's degree also means juggling her family responsibilities with courses in electrical and computer engineering and a summer co-op position at X-Rite Inc., where she works as a product tester.
This summer, the mother to five children and grandmother to three, is headed to Switzerland for a study abroad program; it will be Schwallier's first time overseas. She'll return to Zurich for the fall semester.
