intimating and overwhelming at first. But if you're still on the
fence, Campus Visit Day on March 4 can be an easy way to get
Offered only twice a year, Campus Visit
Day lets you test out the college experience for a day to see
what feels comfortable. National University does a great job of
immersing you in interactive and hands-on experiences during
their Visit Day events. You'll get to enjoy a continental
breakfast, a program overview, campus tour, a chance to meet
current students and alumni, and learn the details about
admissions, financial aid, housing, student clubs and much
You will also get the chance to have all your questions
answered. Part of the day includes a panel where current students
get a chance to discuss their own experiences. One common theme
among panels is the supportive communities within the individual
programs. Students share study guides, organize study groups and
encourage each other to take a break.
These kinds of activities along with the chance to meet faculty
and staff can help dispel any fears and put you on the right track
toward completing your degree. You'll probably be surprised
how many other people, just like you, are deciding to go back and
complete their bachelor's degree.

Some science courses
have strange names that you may have never heard before. Take
"kinesiology" for example. What is it? Kinesiology is the physics
of the human body, or how the body functions when it's in
DC, of National University, teaches kinesiology in the bachelor of biomedical
science program. He says, "Kinesiology is the function of
joints and muscles -- how the body works. It can prepare you very
well for graduate health programs in virtually any field, whether
you'll be studying medicine, dentistry, chiropractic, or any other
health career degree."
For example, in Dr. Elder's class, you'll not only learn the
names and locations of muscles, but also:
Kinesiology is crucial for those who are planning a career in
sports medicine, orthopedics or chiropractic medicine. These are
fields where professionals must keenly understand the cause and
prevention of injury. For that reason, understanding anatomy is not
enough. They have to know how different types of motion put stress
on joints and muscles. You might say that kinesiology puts anatomy
in motion so that we can gain a better understanding of how the
human body is engineered.
At National University's bachelor of biomedical science program,
you can study kinesiology as well as your choice of over
over 40 courses in science, math, computer and communication
subjects specifically designed to prepare you for a career in
Perhaps you've heard that a college degree just isn't worth it
anymore. That's not true according to the latest statistics. Check
out a Huffington Post article by Joseph Pisani titled: "Yes, A College Degree Still Worth It..."
Based on a report released in June by
the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, two economists used federal
data to show that a person with a bachelor's degree can expect to
earn about $1.2 million more, from ages 22 to 64, than someone with
just a high school diploma. They also earn significantly more than
what a person with just an associate's degree would earn over that
The report said that between 1970 and 2013, those with a
four-year bachelor's degree earned an average of about $64,500 per
year, while those with a two-year associate's degree earned about
$50,000 per year and those with only a high school diploma earned
$41,000 per year.
So, if the nay-sayers are holding you back, don't let them.
Finishing your degree is one of the best investments you can make.
