If you follow my blogs you know that my future daughter in law just moved to Michigan from New York and is pursuing her bachelor's degree. The internet makes it possible for her to complete her studies without changing schools. She only has five credits to go and is closing in on her degree quickly even though she started in New York and now lives in Michigan!
We are living in a new age.
We no longer have to wrestle our schedule with our employees and our jobs so we can attend both. We can attend school at virtually any hour we can get to a computer. Perhaps that is why they call the studies "virtual" studies.
Former President Bill Clinton gave the address.
Imagine the excitement of these Walden University graduates as they sat in the audience and were honored by the presence of former President Bill Clinton as he gave the 46th commencement address just last month. You can do more than imagine, you can visit the site and listen to his rousing and motivating speech. Perhaps that is all you will need to decide to do something good for yourself and either enroll or re-enroll. Maybe it is something you have had in the back of your mind for awhile.
They have relaxed repayment of student loans.
I was encouraged when I heard him mention that with new laws enacted by the federal government, graduates now have up to 20 years to repay and can make smaller payments in ratio to what they are earning.
Choose your schedule, choose your major and choose the level of degree!
They can chose from hundreds of careers at different levels, some without degrees and others with. Courses are individually programmed for each student's needs and will help with enhancing the career one is already working in or enable them to pursue other career options. The virtual adviser will help you to ascertain whether Walden is right for you.
At WaldenU.edu one can complete their desired studies, achieve the level desired and do so in the privacy of their home. They can remain at home with their family while they participate in their studies and work the hours they chose. There are courses which will enable them to pursue degrees in education, health, management, nursing, psychology, public policy and administration, counseling and social service. You are certainly worth a few minutes to explore your options.
Thanks so much for your visit today. Take care and God bless!
