Meet ChiliHead, Sabrina, an important part of the team at our restaurant in Hamilton, Ohio. There’s no one like Sabrina and there’s nothing like the way she’s approaching higher education. She once that that she had to put her dreams on hold but all that changed after she learned about our no-cost education program.
“I had taken a gap year after high school and was looking into starting school again,” says Sabrina. Today, she’s working towards her associate’s degree at one of the most innovative schools around. It’s called Best You EDU™ and is only available through Chili’s parent company, Brinker International.
What is Best You EDU™? It’s a whole lot like a traditional university, only without all the tuition fees, fraternities, sororities, football teams and other things that, frankly, just get in the way of getting your degree. Amirite?
Sabrina first heard about the program through her Director of Operations. Sabrina recalls, “I wasn’t too sure about it at first, but after thinking about it, I thought applying couldn’t hurt.”
Applying was quick and easy and before she knew it, she received an acceptance email and was immediately contacted by an academic advisor. Sabrina says, “My advisor explained everything I had to do, and kept in contact with me throughout the entire enrollment process. That made me so much more excited for school.”
What’s it like going to Best You EDU™? “The school website is easy to navigate,” says Sabrina. “They make sure you’re ready when the semester starts. My classes are all online, and I can easily get in contact with my professor if I have any issues.”
Sabrina also adds, “I’ve just had an amazing experience with this program. I’ve been so invested into school, and that’s something I never thought I’d be able to say. I’m able to maintain a steady work schedule and do school at the same time.”
On top of everything else, Sabrina says, “My parents couldn’t be prouder of the progress I’ve made, and that just gives me the biggest smile.”
