Your college education is a big investment, and it’s important to choose a school that will meet your individual needs. Whether you’re looking for flexibility, convenience, or support, spend your time learning at a university that shares your values and is committed to helping you reach your goals.
Here are five signs you could thrive at a career-focused, caring and flexible school like Herzing University:
1. You’re self-motivated
You’re looking for a college that’s focused on your success. You know what your goals are and you have the drive to reach them. While there might be obstacles along the way, you’re determined to work through them and you know it’ll only make you stronger in the process.
A support network of caring advisors, teachers, former and current students can help keep you motivated. From registration and funding through graduation and ongoing career guidance, look for a school that can offer you support every step of the way.
2. You want a personalized college experience
You want to earn your degree around your schedule, with minimal disruptions to your life and your lifestyle. You’re looking for a university that offers the flexibility to start when you’re ready, learn at your pace, go full- or part-time and be on-campus or online. These qualities make it easy for you to fit education into your life, not the other way around.
3. You value progress
You’re inspired by the idea of attaining personal and career growth. You believe in yourself and you are optimistic about your future. Choose a college that makes it easy for you to move as quickly as you want to. For example, frequent start dates and classes that run through the summer can help you get going while others are waiting, and keep moving while others are stopped.
4. You are career-oriented
You need career-focused classes to help you hit the ground running. You’re looking for practical, hands-on learning opportunities, so that you can graduate with the skills and certifications that employers are looking for now, and in the future.
Make sure the college you choose can provide you with exactly what you need – no wasted classes or coursework – so that you have everything necessary to obtain the professional life that you want and the personal benefits that come with it.
5. You’re already thinking about the next step
Maybe it’s been a while since the last time you went to college, or maybe you’re hoping to apply some of your prior work experience to a new career. Either way, you don’t want to go backward to move forward. You’re looking for a school that allows you to build on what you have. It’s also important to you that there’s a path forward in your education. Make sure the college you choose offers programs that meet your current ambitions, as well as where you might want to go later in life.
All of this is possible when you study at Herzing University. We’re not just here to get you started, we’re committed to making sure you finish and are successful.
We take the time to understand where you’re coming from, your current situation and where you want to go, and then tailor a program just for you. Most of our students are balancing work and other commitments, so we make sure education fits into your schedule, whether full-time, part-time or one class at a time.
At Herzing, we also work to make it easy to get to the next level. You can continue to advance within our same supported and accelerated system, going as far as you want – such as a master’s in nursing, an MBA or an advanced IT certification – whenever you’re ready.
