    Levels of Participation

    cum laude: 6 books

    summa cum laude: 12 books

I used to major in Natural Health and Holistic Nutrition before my college unfortunately shut down, so I never got to finish my degree.

I was studying part-time and couldn’t finish my courses before they shut down for good and I didn’t want to be transferred to other colleges that they had worked out something with because I had other things going on in my life and I knew I wouldn’t be able to commit at that time.

I’ve still got some of the text books that I’d already bought but didn’t get the chance to study, and there’s a whole reading list I’d love to read on the subject. I’m going with magna cum laude, but will try to get summa cum laude if possible. =)
