As the year winds down, we consider everything we’ve done to improve our lives over the past twelve months. Maybe you paid off your debt, or lost weight, or even learned a new skill. All of these are very helpful, but maybe it’s time to raise the stakes by finishing that degree you’ve started. This year, you should consider a more important commitment to yourself and complete your education. Finishing your degree will benefit you in many ways, and with an Applied Technology degree, you could be closer to graduation than you think.
