Transforming Lives Through Online Education

Claudia Achilles is a first-generation Boise State student — the first in her family to graduate with a bachelor’s degree and pursue a graduate degree.

“When I started this program, I wondered if I could do it because no one in my family has done this before. I know I’m trailblazing, and it’s really exciting. I hope somebody, somewhere else, recognizes that there’s a place for them and that they belong here.”
