Alpha! Bravo! Charlie! Ed Dennis Joins IAVA’s Storm the Hill teams fight to end veteran unemployment.

Ed participated in the 2011 Storm the Hill as an individual veteran, not as a representative of the College. He was part of a select group chosen from hundreds of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans across the country that applied to participate in Storm the Hill 2011. The group was made up of individuals with a diverse array of military service and personal experience who offered lawmakers a unique understanding of the issues facing the veterans’ community. Bryant & Stratton College Online is proud of his dedication to the veterans’ community as well as active-duty and military students.

How to Study for Success

Back to school season is right around the corner.  With that in mind, I thought it would be helpful to post a video with study tips for those returning to school.  Whether you have just graduated from high school and are transitioning to college or if you are returning to school after being away for many years, these are study tips that can help you.  I felt that it might be helpful to share with others the things that worked best for me.  Remember, just because this is what worked best for me, you may find something else works better for you.  It may take a bit of trial and error to find the study routine that works well for you.  If you have any questions about the upcoming semester or about anything in this video, please post them in the comments section below.  Best of luck in returning to school this fall!

Simple Steps for Enrolling in an Online Degree Program

When I am talking to people about enrolling in college, many people think that it will be a lengthy process.  The simple truth is enrolling in an online degree can be done in as little as one week.  There are a few steps that need to be completed before you can be accepted into Bryant & Stratton College Online.  You need to complete the free online application, complete your FAFSA form, submit a transcript request form, and submit an essay.  The essay briefly explains why you are choosing your degree of interest and why you will be successful in an online program.  Once you are accepted, you need to accept your financial aid package and take placement tests.  At Bryant & Stratton College Online we have six session starts per year, so you can start your degree whenever you are ready and enrolling will be even quicker than you thought possible.  Our next session of classes begin on June 23, 2010.  Please let me know if you have any questions about earning your degree online or the Admissions process.

Building an Online Community

Being an Online student doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on being a part of a campus community.  Social media tools like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube allow us to stay connected now more than ever before.  Getting involved with your college’s online social circle allows you to interact and get to know your classmates in a similar manner to how you would if you attended a physical campus and had time to talk in the hallway between classes.  Social networking gives students a place to connect with others and find out a little bit more about each other, share photos of important things in their lives, share career goals, or even just to vent about a hard exam for a course!  We want to build a large online community for our students, graduates and even potential students to be heard and interacted with.  Please visit our Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube pages today to see what your classmates are up to and join the conversation.
