Science Can Be Beautiful!

The world of scientific study can be dazzlingly beautiful. Check out the winning photos from 40 years of Nikon's annual "Small World" contest winners on CNN. These images are captured by a light microscope and called "photomicrographs." The field of study that works to capture these images is "micrography." The photos are not only a form of art, but can capture and illuminate important scientific data about the subjects.

If you can't get enough of micrography, here is a link to a listing of all the Nikon "Small World" galleries.

Campus Visit Day Gives a Taste of “Going Back to School”

Does going back to finish a bachelor's degree feel intimidating? Does it seem like an overwhelming decision - so overwhelming that you just keep putting it off?

A great remedy to cure your reservations about going back to school is to try a campus visit day or "student-for-a-day" experience.  Testing the college experience out for just a day is like dipping your toes in the water. You don't have to commit, but you can see if it feels comfortable, and you can have all your questions answered.

 ClassActually being on campus, meeting faculty and staff, and sitting in on a class, can dispel a lot of fear.  You'll probably be surprised how many other people, just like you, are deciding to go back and finish a four-year degree.  You'll also have a chance to see how much college may have changed since you left (e.g. new technology, Facebook groups, online course options).

National University of Health Sciences does a great job of immersing you in interactive and hands-on experiences during their Visit Day and Student For a Day events. We know you have lots of questions about course credits, financial aid, career opportunities, and how to fit our convenient evening classes into your already busy life. We understand what an important step going back to school can be, and provide as much support and information as possible to help you make the right decision.

There's no time like right now to set one day aside and experience National University. Our next Visit Day is Saturday, March 14, and we also have Student for a Day event scheduled for March 26th, and more throughout the year.
