Jacqueline Gray | 4 comments Hello everyone and Happy New Year to all. My name is Jacqueline Gray, I attended the Mid-Town campus in New York. I majored in Health Services Management, Class of 2018, graduated in May 2019.
I have always participated in the Online Book club discussion board and I must say they have always been educational and entertaining. For the first timers, open your mind to reading and understanding what the writer tries to convey. The books used each semester can help you in your studies and in life. So, come with an open mind to receive knowledge, take something from the written words. Most of all have fun reading.

Evelise Rodrigo (erodrigo) | 2 comments My name is Evelise Rodrigo. I’m 25 years old. My major is Business Administration Management. I’m currently attending online classes. I have two semesters left to complete my degree. Class of 2020. I have participated in Oprah’s Online Book Club. I’ve read Michelle Obama’s book & Olive Again, with Oprah’s book club.

Don’t fall behind and even if you do, the group will help you catch up and if you don’t understand something don’t hesitate to ask questions. We all interpret things different so we can all read the same book and have different views on it. Always underline words you don’t know and look them up after.

I look forward to participating with all of you :)

Nanette Fandino-Diaz | 1 comments Hello everyone. My name is Nanette Fandino-Diaz and I attended classes at the West Paterson campus. I completed the ASS in Applied Systems Management in 1996.

Over the past few years I have participated in a few professional online book clubs. Most of these have been related to World Language teaching and social-emotional learning. The one thing that I have to remind myself with an online book club is to make sure and get the reading done by the selected date. Some book clubs have had weekly goals and others a one time meet and discuss. I always want to be prepared to keep the discussion going.

I am looking forward to being part of this group.

Shanna | 1 comments Good day everyone. My name is Shanna W. I was a student at Berkeley College. Bachelors Degree major in Criminal Justice. I would love to continue my education, but right now I’m expecting my first baby. In the meantime I’ve been focusing and keeping my brain fresh by reading and studying new books. Berkeley college have always been great to me! Helped me pushed forward into getting me in my current field as a law enforcement officer, and also currently still serving the military have helped me financially to get through Berkeley college! I would say this college have so many tools and resources you can take advantage of! They could never lead you wrong! I’m looking forward for more book clubs and always more new information on any upcoming resources.
