2016 is drawing to a close, and resolutions are everywhere. Lose weight. Travel more. Worry less. Get organized.
The new year is about fresh starts and new beginnings. It’s the perfect time to focus on achieving some goals, especially earning that degree you’ve always wanted but haven't gotten around to yet.
But to make sure that resolution actually becomes a reality in 2017, you’re going to need a few things.
In order to achieve any goal—from losing weight to earning a degree—you need people who support you in the process. They’ll cheer you on when the going gets tough—and it will—and celebrate with you when you achieve milestones. That’s especially true when your fresh start involves going back to school. Earning a degree takes dedication, focus and hard work—even more so when you’re juggling family, work and school. At Trevecca, you’ll earn your degree in a cohort setting, meaning you’ll complete your entire program with the same group of people, facing the struggles and triumphs together. Our faculty and staff are also on your team, dedicated to do whatever necessary to help you finish your degree.
2. A plan.
Without a plan, a resolution is just a nice idea. You need a plan to take your resolution from concept to reality. Earning a degree is no different. At Trevecca, our advisers can help you to develop a plan that will help you complete your degree program on your terms and according to your schedule. They’ll be with you every step of the way, holding you accountable and helping you to make adjustments if needed. With your goal clearly in focus, you’ll be able to focus on each step, moving closer to that degree with each class.
3. The right environment.
It takes more than resolve to make sure you accomplish your goals. The right environment is absolutely necessary. If you want to earn a degree, you need to find the university and program with the environment for you to thrive. At Trevecca, our degree programs are built around Christ-like community and real-world excellence. We want you to have all the support you need to succeed and the knowledge to excel in your chosen fields. Whether you learn best in small groups, online or face-to-face settings, we have degree programs that will meet your needs.2017 is a clean slate and the perfect time for your fresh start. Now’s the time to start planning to make sure your new year’s resolution actually becomes a reality!
