Since 1774, The History of AMES in America, AMES, ames college.#Ames

Ames college

Our Tools Built America®

The AMES story goes back to 1774, when Captain John Ames began making America’s first shovels. We’ve been building America ever since, through wartime and peacetime, boom and bust. And we’ve had our share of adventure along the way—we’ve dug for gold, gone on expeditions to Antarctica, and built at least two of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World.

And just like America, we’re still working every day to build the next great wonder.

1840 1870: AMES Shovels Instrumental Throughout Oregon Trail

Settlers, primarily from the Ohio Valley region and Missouri, battle the elements to migrate West. The main route is the Oregon Trail, leading to the Oregon Territory. The trail begins at Independence, Missouri and ends at Oregon City and the Willamette Valley. The average wagon train endures about six months of confrontations with mountains, rivers, prairie land and desert to reach its destination. AMES shovels are instrumental in the settlers efforts to challenge mother nature and to stake their claims in the new territory.

AMES shovels are used by both crews as rails are laid across prairie, mountains, desert and salt flats and culminate with driving of the Golden Spike to unite the two links at Promontory Point, Utah.

Eliane Keane

Miami dade college nursing program reviews

See how other students describe this professor.

Everything is pretty straight forward. You have Mymathlab and then have to go to her class to get the attendance portion. Overall, the quizzes and exams were easy since there are reviews for them. Only downside is that the teacher is weird and rude.

I took professor Keane MGF 1107 course last Spring. Easy pass. This blended course is a mix of face to face and online work. All quizzes online. An essay- fun- about a math person. Proctored Midterm and Final. So you need to know your stuff . But professor keane has these reviews in her course. Do them and and understand them. You will get A s.

Very discouraging individual. Does not grade fairly. You can have perfect attendance do fairly well in most assignments, but she will still fail you. You have to have a combined 60% in tests 2 5 to pass her class. Must show work to get credit. Does not care, will not give any extensions on homework. You may as well take this class online.

I took her for an MGF1106 Blended online course. Fair as can be – do your homework and show up to class – you will have no problems. She gives reviews for all quizzes and exams, and theyre usually pretty similar to the actual exam. I have struggled with math since high school and I managed a B in this course.

Her class is a lot of work. You have weekly MyMathLab homework and there are 6 test for which she provides reviews and it s all done at home and an essay. There is a proctored midterm and final for which she also provides reviews. She doesn t teach in class but has narrated powerpoints on blackboard. Attendance is mandatory but she doesn t teach.

Prof. Keane is pretty annoying can be rude, but overall her class is a piece of joke. HW on MyMathLab, 5 quizzes you take at home which she provides reviews for, they re exactly the same with different # s. Her midterm was EXACTLY like the review, her final? Not so much, so beware for that last exam! Overall, pretty easy A.

This professor does not teach at all, its a learn yourself type of math class but its not hard if you take notes on the powerpoints on mymathlab. Also for quizzes and midterm/final she gives you reviews MUST DO THEM they are VERY helpful!! The quizzes are done at home with notes and book. Attendance is part of your grade.

Great professor and great class. its an online class so if you have a life, kids and work. this is a great alternative. she is tough and her attitude can be aggressive at times but we are all adults. if you expect people to baby you your whole life dont take this class. but honestly she is great and is there to help. ill take her again

Having her as a professor is the equivalence to talking to an operator whenever your DirectTV signal is down. Pointless. She thinks she s witty but she just comes off intolerable. You teach yourself, it s actually humorous that she expects us to refer to her as Dr considering she shows nothing to live up to the title. I don t recommend her.

This professor really cares. Teaches clearly by demand. We must come to class with questions. Explains to the detail. Tests are so easy because of the reviews she posts in blackboard. Must attend class. Attendance grade.

She. Does make you work for the grade but she honestly respects you. She actually wants you to succeed in the class. She teaches very well

I d rather deal with equations everyday than Deal with her again

MGF1106 online course. Clear syllabus where you do homework (Easy A) and take quizzes after homework is due. Midterm and final (Also easy if you study) and you can practice before hand so you know exactly whats on there. I had a huge family issue and she was understanding about it and we were able to resolve. Forever grateful. I recommend to all.

Not BAD YOU MUST DO YOUR HOMEWORK

This was by far the easiest math course I have ever taken. I took the course online and with the help of the online textbook and instructional videos that go with every chapter, it was extremely easy! I did not feel I needed the instructor much though. I used the textbook program to do homework and study. She did not provide much as a teacher.

The class was blended which means it meets once a week and assignments are mostly online. She is willing to help if the situation arises. I recommend having a study group to achieve the highest grade possible.

She can be a bit intimidating (don t get her mad). She is helpful, don t expect her to baby you. Ask her for her help. She knows what she s doing and wants everyone to pass. Makes the class easy. You can pass if you put in the work. She really cares about her students and loves to see them take her again! Very proud of her students

Isn t understanding at all, just an average professor doing there 9 to 5.. make sure you understand how to navigate the online course completely because they don t explain before hand and she doesn t care

Miami dade college nursing program reviews

Ms. Keane is a unique type of professor (funny). She explains her class well and is available for office hours. Attendance is not mandatory but if you miss more than two classes in a row you might be dropped. Book is not necessary, MyMathLab is because all homework is there. Practice quizes, quizes and two big tests. Class is pretty simple overall.

Keane can be very rude sometimes and very condescending but when it comes to the math it s very easy. You take all the quizzes, tests, and homework online, except for the midterm and final. Attendance is mandatory because she will drop you after 2 absences.

    GCU TRANSFER CENTER

    Grand Canyon University Transfer Guide from a Maricopa Community College

    Maricopa County Community College District (MCCCD) students can easily transfer credits toward a bachelor’s degree at GCU. Whether you take a few classes to brush up on some skills or you complete an associate degree, you will find that many of the credits you earn at an MCCCD school will transfer to GCU.

    Use the Grand Canyon University transfer guides below to learn about transfer policies, course equivalency guides and associate degrees when transferring colleges to GCU. Contact your transfer specialist to learn more.

    GCU Transfer Guides

    If you are earning a degree from an MCCCD school, you may be able to seamlessly transition into a four-year program at GCU. Our guides outline the preferred courses from MCCCD that will be applicable towards a bachelor’s degree from GCU.

    Interested in transferring to GCU? We invite you to our Transfer Experience, where you can visit our campus and learn everything about GCU firsthand. We understand how complex a college transfer can be, which is why we encourage interested you to attend this unique event. Experience our beautiful campus, supportive community, vibrant student life and quality academics at GCU. Learn more at www.gcu.edu/transferexperience

    GCU offers generous scholarship opportunities for transfer students, including grants for priority registration and honors students. Find out which scholarships you may qualify for to see how affordable a private Christian education can be.

    Lopes Credit Evaluation

    The Lopes Credit Evaluation helps you find out exactly how many credits will transfer to GCU for your chosen degree. A Lopes specialist will evaluate your transcripts and help you with the transfer process every step of the way.

    Transferring from Another College or University

    GCU will review courses completed at another college or university, and credit earned at these institutions may be applied to a degree program offered at GCU based on our transfer policies.

    The GCU Transfer Center has formed articulation agreements with a number of two-year colleges, matching the coursework between the two schools to maximize the use of resources, minimize duplicate coursework and help you make a smooth transition when transferring colleges to GCU. Below is a list of schools with which we currently have articulation agreements.

    If you are currently, or planning on attending one of these schools, please work directly with your university counselor, who will guide you into the correct program at this school.

    GCU will still evaluate and award credit to schools not listed below based on our transfer policies. You can have your unofficial transcript evaluated and, in as few as 24 hours, a university counselor will contact you with an estimated number of credits earned, an anticipated graduation date and preliminary schedule.

    California Community Colleges

    Top 3 Computer Degrees to Consider for Your IT Career Path

    #

    There’s an ongoing debate around whether or not you need a four-year degree to get a good IT job. Some say simply having certifications and years of experience is more than good enough to get hired, while some companies won’t even consider you if you don’t have a four-year degree. Well, I’m not going to carry this debate on; only you can decide whether or not you feel you need a degree to get a job. But if you do decide this is the right path for you, these are what I believe to be the top three IT-related four-year degrees you should consider.

    Bachelors in Information Technology and Information Systems

    This is most definitely the top choice if your goal is to excel in dealing with end-user computing, systems administration and/or systems engineering. This degree program touches on almost all aspects of information technology and information systems. Classes such as Introduction to UNIX, Windows Server Networking, Database Concepts, Web Design I II and Fundamentals of Business Systems Development will help you to build a solid foundation in general IT knowledge.

    Bachelors in Computer Science

    A computer science (CS) degree is one of the more common degree programs pursued by budding IT professionals. That being said, a CS degree is not for everyone. While computer science is a desirable degree, it’s also a very difficult degree program. Unlike the BSIT degree, which focuses more on systems and processes, the CS degree focuses more on programming, mathematics and computer theory. Courses you might find in a typical CS degree track include, Programming Principles, Algorithms, Logic Computation, Calculus and Data Structures. If mathematics and programming languages aren’t your thing, I would avoid pursuing a computer science degree.

    Bachelors in Information Science

    In today’s world, data is king. We have become digital pack rats of sorts, storing everything from music to documents to pictures and videos. Where does all of this data get stored and how does it get stored? Well, if you had a degree in Information Science, you would be able to answer those questions in much more depth. Not only do we store our personal stuff electronically, the government and private companies also store data, and their need for skilled professionals to help them manage data grows every day. Having a four-year degree in Information Science would allow you to understand how to best store and manage all of the data that is accumulated by a government entity, a school, a financial institution or a variety of private companies. Classes you would see in a typical Information Science program would be Intermediate Programming, Relational Database Concepts and Applications, Web Database Development and Computer Systems and Architecture.

    These are just three examples of what I believe to be the top degree choices for IT-related career fields. There are many other degrees out there that would definitely suffice for furthering your education; you have to decide what is important to you. Lay out your plan of what you want to do in the IT arena, and then research the degrees that would best fit your road map. Once you’ve decided on a degree program, make sure you do your due diligence to select a school that is respectable and accredited and that offers the exact program you want. Don’t settle for a school because it you can get through it quickly or because it’s super cheap. Your education is not just a financial investment but an investment of your time as well. Depending on whether you decide to be a half-time or full-time student, you could be investing four to six years in a degree program. In the end, when you walk across that stage to accept your diploma and head out into the job market, you can rest assured your resume will stand out and your confidence will grow.

    “A friend who is a maven in finding outstanding resources, recommended Janice and Custom College Visits as we began the daunting college selection process. We worked with Janice on two fronts; to help create a list of colleges and to set-up meaningful colleges visits. The college visits were also a lot of fun for us as a family and very informative on so many levels. More importantly Janice helped make the college selection process manageable, not so daunting after all, and we felt no stone was left unturned in this important decision.

    Tracy P. Parent of a New York City high school Senior

    Thank you so much for planning such a wondrous experience for our son. The careful attention to detail was evident at every turn. Custom College Visits planning effort provided an appropriate path of discovery for our son and for us.

    Michael C. New Jersey parent of a high school Junior

    Hi Janice, Our trip was a thoroughly enjoyable family adventure! Thank you so much for the unique opportunities that you created for our daughter at each college. Meeting with a student at Harvard, was probably the most informative way to start the entire trip. She devoted a lot of time (in the rain) providing real college life details. She swiped us into dining halls, dorms & buildings that we might not have seen otherwise. The sophomore session at Princeton was wonderful! Thank you so much for everything that you did! We really were able to get the most out of each campus visit! Best, Julie

    Julie, Parent of a high school Junior in Southern California

    I found working with Custom College Visits a very positive experience. They were able to pinpoint colleges that were best suited for my daughter and the travel plans were well organized. In addition, they were able to set up an interview with a member of a college color guard, as my daughter had expressed interest in going to a school that had a color guard. I am very pleased with my experience with Custom College Visits, and would recommend them highly.

    Mark L. Parent of high school junior in Northern California

    Lili got accepted into her first choice school today (early decision): Boston University! She is thrilled beyond belief and relieved as well. We could not have done it without your help, it was invaluable. I think the High School Honors program she did there was probably very helpful and we would not have know about it without your forwarding the information to us. You rock! So, I am tipping my hat today to both you and Lili!

    Kim T. Parent of high school senior in Kansas

    I am happy to tell you that Nivi has been accepted early decision to Brown University. She is the first ivy leaguer in our family and we couldn’t be more proud! Her decision to apply was made easier because of the excellent experience she had during her customized tour via your company so thank you so much! We will be sure to recommend you to our friends here..

    Gayathri S. Parent of high school senior Chennai, India

    Thank you again for being so good at what you do. Our trip to the US was a huge success. I was on the verge of cancelling the trip but knew I couldn’t let my son down. That I even found you on the internet was a direct answer to my prayer for a miracle. The itinerary worked very well. I knew I was in good hands even before I boarded the plane to the U.S. and your attention to detail far exceeded my expectation.

    Egbe O. Parent of international high school student

    We had a wonderful trip to Philadelphia and Boston thanks to Janice Caine of Custom College Visits. She worked out an itinerary from start to finish. We visited 9 schools and it was as smooth as possible. Janice worked out tours and information sessions as well as meetings with tennis coaches.We have boy/girl twins and both were happy which is not an easy achievement. Not only did Janice work out the schedule but she recommended great schools in both towns. We would highly recommend her.

    Phil S. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    “Thank you SO MUCH for your involvement in the Splash Parents’ Program this weekend! I am just reviewing the feedback forms, and your presentation received rave reviews across the board; many parents cited it as the highlight of the program for them! Some verbatim quotes include: ‘The Planning and Preparing for College Visits was a great eye opener;’ Thank you for all the effort, energy, and enthusiasm you put into making the event such a success.”

    Marisa M. Coordinator, Splash Parents’ Program Stanford University

    Our college process was two-fold. It began with getting a jump start on the standardized testing, and not waiting until spring of junior year to focus. I believe our outcome was successful because we had a well-managed plan helped along by an expert, Janice Caine, of Custom College Visits.

    Lisa L. Parent of high school students SF Bay Area

    Happy New Year! Wanted to let you know that Charlie was accepted to Johns Hopkins Early Decision! Great news and very exciting all around. Thank you for all your help.

    Beth A. Parent of a high school senior. Massachusetts

    Name. Dartmouth College Investment Office

    Assets Under Management: $4.5 Billion (Source: Valley News Staff Writer on 6/30/2014)

    Portfolio Insights: We are pleased to report that the Endowment portfolio earned an investment return of 5.8% for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012. The total market value of the Endowment, which stood at $3.49 billion at June 30, 2012, rose by $73 million over the course of the fiscal year, including investment gains as well as gifts and transfers ($58.5mm), and net of distributions for spending ($182.9mm). The fiscal year 2012 investment return contributes to a strong long-term performance record, relative to the broad equity and fixed income markets, resulting in meaningful financial support to Dartmouth over time.

    Over the 10-year period ending June 30, 2012, the Endowment produced an annualized 8.2% investment return net of fees, outperforming a 60/40 blended stock/bond benchmark return of 6.1% per annum and higher education inflation of 3.3% per annum. This long-term return also places Dartmouth in the top-quartile of relevant peer universes. The chart below shows the growth of $100 invested at the Endowment rate of return. (Source )

    Our team, the Endowment Fund Association (EFA) and Endowments.com is the #1 community and most visited website dedicated to endowment fund professionals. We provide endowment funds with buy-side co-investment and direct investment deal origination services, outsourced chief investment officer selection help, and also provide Endowment 500 research and Endowment Database Solutions .

    Top Dartmouth College Endowment Fund (Dartmouth College Investment Office) Headlines :

    1) Dartmouth’s endowment reported investment gains of 19.2 percent for fiscal year 2014, which ended on June 30, 2014. The endowment now stands at $4.5 billion, up $735 million from a year earlier, after $778 million in investment gains, $146 million in gifts and transfers, and $189 million in distributions. Over 20 percent of the College’s operating budget is funded by the endowment.

    The endowment outperformed a general 60 percent equity/40 percent bond benchmark, which gained 15.3 percent, and Wilshire Associates’ one-year median of 15.6 percent for foundations and endowments. In addition, the endowment reported higher investment gains than last year, when it netted a 12.1 percent gain, and fiscal year 2012, when it netted 5.8 percent.

    Over the past 20 years, the endowment has returned an average of 11.7 percent annualized, beating the 9.8 percent return of the S P 500 and the 7.1 percent return of the 60 percent equity/40 percent bond benchmark. The fund’s performance ranks within Wilshire’s top quartile of endowments and foundations. (Source )

    2) Dartmouth College says its endowment earned an investment return of 19 percent during the past fiscal year. That s a $735 million gain leaving the Ivy League school with $4.5 billion in its endowment fund. (Source )

    3) Kelsey Morgan joined the Dartmouth College Investment Office in 2012 as a Managing Director for Marketable and Hedged Strategies. Prior to Dartmouth, Kelsey was the Associate Director at Willett Advisors where he assisted with manager selection and portfolio construction for the group s fixed income and public equity portfolios. Previously, Kelsey held positions with Investor Group Services in Boston, MA and Nautic Partners in Providence, RI. Kelsey graduated from Dartmouth College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2002, and earned an MBA from The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College in 2008 where he was a Tuck Scholar. (Source )

    4) Dartmouth College Endowment engages in the following alternative investment strategies: buyouts/corporate finance, distressed debt/turnarounds, energy/oil gas, hedge funds, international private equity, limited partnership secondaries, mezzanine, real estate, and venture capital. Dartmouth College Endowment will commit from $2 million to $10 million per partnership and has a net internal rate of return target of 20%. The fund allocates 5% to 18% of its assets to alternative investments. Dartmouth College Endowment was formed in 1978 and is based in Hanover, New Hampshire. (Source )

    5) It’s not hard to see what Dartmouth College’s wealthy alumni have given to the 244-year-old Ivy League school, nestled among pine trees in Hanover, New Hampshire.

    A 9-foot-tall (2.7-meter-tall) bronze spider sculpted by Louise Bourgeois is the latest arrival. It teeters menacingly on long legs in front of the Black Family Visual Arts Center, built with $48 million from buyout billionaire Leon Black, who graduated in 1973. Other contemporary buildings have sprouted up among the rows of brick Greek- and Georgian-style buildings on the Dartmouth campus in recent years, financed by hedge-fund manager Stephen Mandel (class of ’78) and private-equity investor Russ Carson (class of ’65), Bloomberg Markets will report in its February issue.

    A College Student’s Financial Success key

    Financial success may come in different forms. Financial success does not only mean that you are financially independent, or you have been able to make thousands of dollars off the stock market. To be financially successful, may mean making sure by the time you graduate from college, you are not in debt or worse off than you started.

    As essential as it is to secure a part-time job to support your personal wants, you must be aware of the hidden regressors that come uninvited. Your first check in the mail, brings you to some degree, some feeling of accomplishment. Your adult life is just beginning, where you see the value of getting paid for work done. It goes without say that it s at that time where you start to take on additional responsibilities. The importance of communication and being able to be reached wherever and whenever, prompts you to procure a wireless. The apparent need of getting to and from your job incurs the cost of driving insurance, gas and all other related transportation expenses. Indubitably, acquiring a job doesn t always mean money inflow; it creates a path for money outflow. One needs to be prepared for the unexpected and the ability to be financially successful.

    Credit cards: a friend or a foe? When the due date for bills draw nigh, and the checks are not coming in as often as you would have expected, many students feel pressured to use credit cards as a means of a short-term loan. This method where you plan on immediate repayment is not harmful; however, many students misconstrue that credit cards are an invention to make college life luxurious and comfortable. Wrong!

    Saving is sometimes barely doable for some students, since they end up owing money to all these credit card companies. Our system is designed so that without good credit, one is limited from doing a lot of things. It is thus sagacious if we use our credit cards wisely. Use credit cards for things you know will definitely bring you a return. For example, use your credit cards to buy gas to take you to work. When you decide to use your credit cards to buy all the possible clothes on sale; and the purchase is backed by the conviction of repayment after you graduate, put the credit card back in your book bag.

    Credit cards can either make you or unmake you; this is because if you use them wisely, once you graduate, it will be easier to get a loan for a new car or a lower security deposit on that new apartment. For the college students that work, there is always a possibility of saving your money, even if you can t save a lot; you can still save a little. Try to research online, for banks that offer high interest rates on their savings account. The proliferation of online savings accounts has undeniably increased the interest rates, and thus the potential to earn more on your savings.

    To be financially successful means to be free from debt, in the college perspective it is to try to avoid a post-graduation debt. The broke college student has the ability to be financially successful, if means are taking to save more and use credit wisely.

    Signing Up for Class #signing #up #for #college #classes

    #

    When planning your semester, consider which and how many classes you want to take. The next step would be to actually register and plan your semester. To get your planning started be sure to schedule an appointment with your academic advisor, and start reviewing the following UNT resources to sign up for classes.

    To stay on track for a timely graduation, we recommend you meet with your academic advisor at LEAST twice (2 times) a year:

    1. Between late September-October for Spring semester planning
    2. Between February-March for Summer and Fall semester planning

    Advisors will not pick your class schedule; however you can expect to work with them to identify potential courses to fulfill your degree requirements for your major, minor and certificate options. Be sure to come prepared with class options, ideas for your class schedule, and questions you have from your research within the “Signing Up for Class” section for your advising appointment .

    Should you get a second bachelor – s degree or go

    #

    Should you get a second bachelor’s degree or go for a master’s degree?

    The question plagues more students than you might think.

    Whether you want to change fields, be a more well-rounded job candidate or just learn something new, deciding between a second bachelor s degree and a master s degree is not always easy. While there doesn t seem to be one overarching correct answer binding everyone who considers the question, that doesn t mean an answer doesn t exist at all.

    Here are a few things to consider when deciding between a second bachelor s degree or a master s degree .

    Second bachelor s degree

    If you can t get into your desired master s degree without a bachelor s degree in the subject, then you may want to do what Michael Au plans to do: Get a second bachelor s degree.

    Au, who earned a bachelor s degree in biology from Southwestern University, plans on going to the University of Texas at Austin for his second degree a bachelor s in nursing .

    I think that a master s in biology was not quite the direction I wanted to go in, Au said. I love biology but I don t think I would be happy with a master s in this field. I found myself more drawn to healthcare.

    Be careful, though: Not every school allows someone to get a second bachelor s degree. Stanford University, for example, doesn t allow two degrees in the same area. Meaning, you can t get two Bachelor of Arts degree or two Bachelor of Science degrees, but can do one of each, with permission.

    On the other hand, some schools have a fast track for students pursuing a second bachelor s, such as the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill s nursing program (nursing.unc.edu), which offers an accelerated four-term Bachelor of Science in Nursing option, granted you have the prerequisites completed.

    Also, don t expect the same kind of financial aid options as you d have with a master s degree. According to a U.S. News World Report article, there are fewer financial aid options for those pursuing a second bachelor s.

    Scholarship or private loan eligibility are not affected significantly, nor is eligibility for PLUS loans and work-study, according to the article, but federal loans may be at stake.

    Federal Stafford student loans are available for second bachelor s degrees, but the lifetime limit is based on your total time as an undergraduate, reads the article, which also states the limit is $57,500 for undergraduates. A master s degree student would start over with federal Stafford student loan lifetime limits.

    And according to Fastweb.com, students with a prior bachelor s degree are ineligible for the Pell Grant, Academic Competitiveness Grant, National SMART Grant, the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) and the Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education Grant (TEACH Grant).

    So you may be spending more money than you would have if you just got your first degree in your now-desired subject. But with two degrees, you may be more diverse, as Au realized.

    I think that a liberal arts education is so valuable but also a very practical degree is valuable, Au said. Now I m getting both!

    Master s degree

    If you want to change career paths or study something new, then a master s degree may make sense.

    For Polly Thurston, who earned a bachelor s degree in art from Austin College, she decided her senior year of undergrad that she wanted to work in graphic design. Her school didn t have the degree so she had a decision to make: second bachelor s or master s. She chose a master s, eventually graduating with a master s in communication design from Pratt Institute.

    I wanted to be challenged…and I hoped that the advanced degree would open more doors for me in the career world, said Thurston, who assumed a second bachelor s degree would be difficult for her with some of the basic courses and younger students. I think the master s degree gave me more confidence in my search and a more advanced set of tools.

    In many cases, you have to have an undergraduate degree in the subject to be accepted into a master s or Ph.D. program. That s not always the case though, as Thurston found out. Also, you can sometimes take a few classes as a non-degree student to fulfill that requirement.

    There are less scholarship opportunities for grad students (Scholarships.com has a separate page for grad students), though you may qualify for private students loans. And according to the U.S. Department of Education s Federal Student Aid page, grad students are eligible for:

    • The William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program
    • Federal Perkins Loan (Perkins Loan) Program
    • Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant
    • Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program
    • Federal Pell Grant

    There s no objectively right or wrong answer to the question of second bachelor s vs. master s. Just make sure you decide what s right for you.

    Accounting Program Career Facts

    What They Do:

    Accountants and auditors prepare, analyze, and verify financial reports and taxes and monitor information systems that furnish this information to managers in business, industry, and government.

    The major fields of accounting are public, management, and government accounting. Public accountants have their own businesses or work for public accounting firms. They perform a broad range of accounting, auditing, tax, and consulting activities for their clients, who may be corporations, governments, nonprofit organizations, or individuals. Management accountants (also called industrial, corporate, or private accountants) record and analyze the financial information of the companies for which they work. Other responsibilities include budgeting, performance evaluation, cost management, and asset management Government accountants and auditors maintain and examine the records of government agencies and audit private businesses and individuals whose activities are subject to government regulations or taxation.

    Within each field, accountants often concentrate on one aspect of accounting. For example, many public accountants concentrate on tax matters, such as preparing individual income tax returns and advising companies of the tax advantages and disadvantages of certain business decisions.

    Increasing numbers of accounting graduates are working in private corporations. Management accountants analyze and interpret the financial information corporate executives need to make sound business decisions. They also prepare financial reports for non-management groups, including stockholders, creditors, regulatory agencies, and tax authorities. Within accounting departments, they may work in financial analysis, planning and budgeting, cost accounting, and other areas.

    Who Would Enjoy It:

    People with accounting jobs understand information systems and are skilled at working with computers to gather, report, and interpret information. Skills in human relations and interviewing are essential because accountants need to understand and solve financial problems for other people.

    Accounting covers a wide variety of jobs including Financial Reporting, Income Tax Research and Preparation, Information Systems Design, Auditing, Budget Preparation, and Cost Accounting. Levels of accounting jobs range from clerical bookkeeping to Vice-President of Finance/Chief Financial Officers.

    What They Earn:

    The average starting salary for someone with a bachelor s degree is about $35,000 per year, yet salaries ranged from $30,000 to $40,000. Those with 1 to 3 years experience will increase to about $50,000 a year, with salaries ranging from $30,000 and $60,000 in the higher management positions. After 10 to 15 years of experience in this field, one may earn up to $110,000 per year. Starting salaries with an associate degree vary with the individual s education and work experience. Bookkeeping jobs for students working on a degree vary from $8.00 per hour on up depending upon education and experience.

    How Many Jobs Available:

    Employment of accountants and auditors is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through the year 2014. Each year, several hundred thousand jobs for bookkeeping, accounting, and auditing clerks will become available as these clerks transfer to other occupations or leave the labor force. The large size of the occupation ensures plentiful job openings, including many opportunities for temporary and part-time work.

    How Much Schooling, Training, or Skill Development:

    Most professional accountant and internal auditor positions require at least a bachelor s degree in accounting or a related field. However, many employers are beginning to prefer candidates who have earned a master s degree. A variety of bookkeeping and paraprofessional accounting jobs are available for people with less than an associate degree. There appears to be a growing trend for these jobs to request a minimum of an associate degree.

    Accountants traditionally have been detail-oriented and that is still important, but modern accountants require a much broader set of abilities. The modern accountant needs highly developed analytical skills to deal with the ever-changing business environment. Good oral and written communication skills are a necessity. Interpersonal skills are highly desirable. The ability to effectively work with computers is a necessity. Computerization lessened the focus on repetitive, detail-oriented work in accounting in favor of analysis and communication.

    Based on recommendations made by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, most states currently require CPA candidates to complete 150 semester hours of college coursework. Students already holding a bachelor s degree in another field who earn an associate degree in accounting may meet the educational qualifications for the CPA examination and entry into professional levels of accounting. In Michigan, the 150-hour law can be met with LCC classes if the student has a 4-year degree already.

    Gwen Ifill dead at age 61

    By KELSEY SUTTON and HADAS GOLD

    11/14/2016 01:59 PM EST

    Gwen Ifill, the longtime PBS news anchor who had served as a co-host of the PBS NewsHour and as moderator of “Washington Week,” has died after a battle with cancer, PBS has confirmed. She was 61.

    “It is with extremely heavy hearts that we must share that our dear friend and beloved colleague Gwen Ifill passed away this afternoon following several months of cancer treatment,” PBS NewsHour said in a statement on Monday. “She was surrounded by loving family and many friends whom we ask that you keep in your thoughts and prayers.”

    I am very sad to tell you that our dear friend and beloved colleague Gwen Ifill passed away today in hospice care in Washington, WETA President and CEO Sharon Percy Rockefeller wrote in an email to staff at the public TV station Monday. I spent an hour with her this morning and she was resting comfortably, surrounded by loving family and friends. Earlier today, I conveyed to Gwen the devoted love and affection of all of us at WETA/NewsHour. Let us hold Gwen and her family even closer now in our hearts and prayers.

    Ifill had been absent from PBS’s election coverage last week because of ongoing health issues. She also took a leave of absence in May to address those issues.

    Gwen was a standard bearer for courage, fairness and integrity in an industry going through seismic change. She was a mentor to so many across the industry and her professionalism was respected across the political spectrum. She was a journalist’s journalist and set an example for all around her, said PBS NewsHour Executive Producer Sara Just in a statement.

    So many people in the audience felt that they knew and adored her. She had a tremendous combination of warmth and authority. She was stopped on the street routinely by people who just wanted to give her a hug and considered her a friend after years of seeing her on TV. We will forever miss her terribly.

    On Wednesday, Ifill was to receive the 2016 John Chancellor Award from Columbia University. A spokesperson for the university did not immediately have a comment.

    Ifill, who was born in New York City, graduated from Simmons College, a women’s college located in Boston, in 1977, before beginning her career at the Boston Herald-American. She held reporting positions at the Baltimore Evening Sun, The Washington Post, The New York Times and NBC before becoming a moderator of PBS’s “Washington Week in Review” in 1999.

    Ifill’s first book, “The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama,” was released on the day of President Barack Obama’s first inauguration. One of the most visible African-American female broadcast journalists, she received more than 20 honorary doctorates, had been honored by the Peabody Awards, the Radio and Television News Directors Association, Harvard’s Joan Shorenstein Center and the National Association of Black Journalists among others. She also served on the boards of the News Literacy Project, the Committee to Protect Journalists, and was a fellow with the American Academy of Sciences.

    Ifill’s acclaimed career was also marked by the obstacles she overcame as a black woman in the news business. As an intern at the Boston Herald-American, a staffer left a note that included a racial epithet telling her to “go home”; Ifill would go on to be the only black moderator and the only woman moderating the 2004 vice presidential debate between Dick Cheney and John Edwards, and then the 2008 vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin. Ifill also moderated a primary debate between Sen. Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton last year.

    Obama remembers Gwen Ifill on Monday.

    11/14/16 07:27 PM EST

    She faced accusations of bias for not appearing excited about Palin’s speech at the Republican National Convention in 2008, and for her book about Obama, charges that PBS rejected. She once recalled to The Washington Post that a journalist asked her whether she was “in the tank” for Obama, presumably because of her race. “I’m still capable of looking at his pros and cons in a political sense,” Ifill said at the time. “No one’s ever assumed a white reporter can’t cover a white candidate.”

    Ifill was outspoken about the barriers she broke through and was aware of her influence on young viewers.

    When I was a little girl watching programs like this — because that’s the kind of nerdy family we were — I would look up and not see anyone who looked like me in any way, she said in a 2013 interview with The New York Times, after she and Judy Woodruff were named the first female co-anchors of NewsHour. No women. No people of color. I’m very keen about the fact that a little girl now, watching the news, when they see me and Judy sitting side by side, it will occur to them that that’s perfectly normal — that it won’t seem like any big breakthrough at all.”

    Ifill served on the board of the Harvard Institute of Politics and the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism. She was also a board member of the Committee to Protect Journalists and the Museum of Television and Radio.

    “She was a newspaper reporter through and through,” said an emotional NBC News correspondent Pete Williams as he reported on Ifill’s death on MSNBC. “She had so many rewards and awards in her office you could barely see out the window. She was one of the most successful women in journalism.”

    Gwen was a friend of ours, President Obama said at a Monday afternoon news conference. She was an extraordinary journalist. She always kept faith with the fundamental responsibilities of her profession, asking tough questions, holding people in power accountable and defending a strong and free press that makes our democracy work. I always appreciated Gwen’s reporting, even when I was at the receiving end of one of her tough and thorough interviews. Whether she reported from a convention floor or from the field, whether she sat at the debate moderator’s table or at the anchor’s deck, she not only informed today’s citizens but she also inspired tomorrow’s journalists. She was an especially powerful role model for young women and girls who admired her integrity, tenacity and intellect and for whom she blazed a trail as one-half of the first all-female anchor team on network news. Gwen did her country a great service. Michelle and I join her family and her colleagues and everybody else who loved her in remembering her fondly today.

    “We can’t expect the world to get better by itself. We have to create something we can leave the next generation,” Ifill told the Washingtonian after being named its “2015 Washingtonian of the Year.”

    Cheap Flights for College Students

    Need to get your college student home for Thanksgiving or home for the summer? There are things you can do to minimize the impact on your wallet even during the busiest travel seasons so study the following tips carefully but don t worry there won t be a quiz.

    1. Airfare 101

    When to shop: Best day of the week to shop is Tuesday. specifically about 3 p.m. eastern time. By then, all airfare sales have been launched and other airlines have matched the lower prices to stay competitive. Tip: Sign up for airfare alerts because some sales and special deals come out of the blue.

    When to fly: Typically, the cheapest days to fly are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and often Saturdays. You can t always make this work due to exam schedules but even if you can only fly one cheaper day, you ll still see savings.

    2. Connecting Flights vs. Non-stops

    A good way to save during holiday periods and other times of year is to forget about convenient non-stops and fly less expensive connecting flights. Non-stops can add as much as 10% to 20% to your airfare total ; why not use the savings for books and tuition instead? And don t worry about the rigors of connecting if college kids can stay up all night studying (or whatever), they can endure a multi-flight trip.

    3. Know the Cheapest Airports

    Rule of thumb: The bigger the city, the cheaper the flights in and out of its airport. Bad news for those in small to mid-sized cities but if there is a hub airport near you or within a couple of hours driving distance it could be worth your while. Always compare prices to multiple airports. For example, Yale students should check prices from Hartford and New York, then factor in the cost of gas and parking fees before putting a final price tag on flights.

    4. Connect with Social Media

    Most airlines are active on Facebook and Twitter and some offer special deals exclusive to social media followers. Bonus: If problems arise with a flight, many airlines respond most promptly to questions/concerns via Twitter.

    5. How to Find Special Deals

    Sometimes, college students and others can score with discounts from sites like Groupon or LivingSocial. Virgin America and others have advertised specials on such sites from time to time, so be sure you sign up.

    And low-cost carrier AirTran has a program called AirTran U which offers students between the ages of 18-22 discounts on standby flights. However whether AirTran s new boss Southwest continues this program when its integration with AirTran is completed is anybody s guess.

    6. Save on Baggage

    Best baggage tip: If a student is starting school or finishing up for the year, use a carry-on bag and box up most belongings so they can be shipped via ground transportation you ll save a bundle. If you must bring larger luggage, pack carefully since checked-bags are monitored for size and weight and any deviations can cost you dearly.

    Consider the following example which is especially noteworthy for students starting school or finishing up for the year. Prices shown are from United s website (but are the same or close to the fees charged by American, Delta and US Airways).

    • Two checked-bags under 50 pounds each: $60 one-way
    • One checked-bag 50-70 pounds: $125 one-way
    • One checked-bag over 70 pounds: $225 one-way

    Even English majors can do this math. Alternatives: JetBlue gives you one checked-bag for free and Southwest gives you two, but make sure the airfare is cheap enough to make it worth your while this is why FareCompare always recommends you shop an airfare comparison site.

    7. Dress Responsibly

    Airlines can and do refuse to allow passengers to fly if their clothing is deemed too skimpy or if messages on T-shirts are considered too provocative .

    8. Holiday Tips

    TSA lines will be long and busy during Thanksgiving and Christmas, so don t slow things down by carrying bottles of water (they ll be dumped) or wrapped gifts (they ll be unwrapped) but rules on snow globes have eased and such normal-sized souvenirs are now OK at security.

    Student Lending and Services

After we make the initial loan to you, we may refuse to allow you to take out additional loans under the multi-year approval feature, terms and conditions will be outlined in your promissory note.

    1 Average savings of $643 are calculated using the 2016/2017 Award Year Federal Direct PLUS Loan program reporting (as of 5/03/2017 for quarter ending December 31, 2016 not including Grad PLUS) of originations of

    $11.1 billion to 740,097 borrowers through 769,597 loans with an average loan size of $15,035.30. Average fee savings is possible with either private student loan option we offer, including the Citizens Bank Student Loan or the Citizens Bank Student Loan for Parents.

    2 Average savings based on 57,772 actual customers who refinanced their federal and private student loans through our Education Refinance Loan between January 6, 2014 and January 31, 2017. The borrower s savings might vary based on the interest rates, balances and remaining repayment term of the loans they are seeking to refinance. The borrower s overall repayment amount may be higher than the loans they are refinancing even if their monthly payments are lower.

    3 U.S. Dept. of Education. The loan fee is a percentage of the loan amount and is proportionately deducted from each loan disbursement. For Loans first disbursed between October 1, 2016 and September 30, 2017 the origination fee is 4.276%.

    4 Interest rate reduction of up to 0.50 percentage points is possible with the following discounts:

    Loyalty Discount: The borrower will be eligible for a 0.25 percentage point interest rate reduction on their loan if the borrower or their co-signer (if applicable) has a qualifying account in existence with us at the time the borrower and their co-signer (if applicable) have submitted a completed application authorizing us to review their credit request for the loan. The following are qualifying accounts: any checking account, savings account, money market account, certificate of deposit, automobile loan, home equity loan, home equity line of credit, mortgage, credit card account, or other student loans owned by Citizens Bank, N.A. Please note, our checking and savings account options are only available in the following states: CT, DE, MA, MI, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, and VT and some products may have an associated cost. This discount will be reflected in the interest rate disclosed in the Loan Approval Disclosure that will be provided to the borrower once the loan is approved. Limit of one Loyalty Discount per loan and discount will not be applied to prior loans. The Loyalty Discount will remain in effect for the life of the loan.

    Automatic Payment Discount: Borrowers will be eligible to receive a 0.25 percentage point interest rate reduction on their student loans owned by Citizens Bank, N.A. during such time as payments are required to be made and our loan servicer is authorized to automatically deduct payments each month from any bank account the borrower designates. Discount is not available when payments are not due, such as during forbearance. If our loan servicer is unable to successfully withdraw the automatic deductions from the designated account three or more times within any 12-month period, the borrower will no longer be eligible for this discount.

    Welcome to the Trinity Center

    The Trinity Center for Women and Girls in Sports is a $20 million state-of-the-art athletic, recreational and educational complex located in the heart of Trinity Washington University s campus in northeast Washington.

    When pollsters interrupt people’s dinners to ask about their New Year’s resolutions, very often the top three responses are “get in shape,” “lose weight” and “save money.” Find a deal on a gym membership, and you can do all three. Here’s how…

    • Go to college: Colleges and universities are another often-overlooked resource. Most now have elaborate exercise facilities to attract students, and many offer memberships to the community. In the D.C. area, one example is Trinity Washington University, which charges Brookland neighbors $520 a year to join its Trinity Center gym. Compare that with the roughly $600 to $1,200 a year some of the big D.C. gym chains charge, according to Consumers’ Checkbook.
