Let Argosy University help you make some great New Year’s resolutions

(San Bernardino, Calif.) New Year's Eve has always been a time for looking back at the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It's a time to reflect on the changes we want or need to make and resolve to follow through on those changes.

If educational pursuits are part of your New Year’s resolutions, don’t let the everyday chaos called life get in the way. Argosy University/Inland Empire can show you how to fit education into your busy schedule.

Join Argosy University for a New Year’s Open House on Thursday, Jan. 4, 2007 at the campus, 636 E. Brier Dr., Ste. 235, San Bernardino. Learn how the university can help you develop a personalized education plan, with a schedule tailor-made to meet your needs.

“Whether you want a classroom experience, online or a blended format of online and classroom, we are flexible,” said Dr. Darren Adamson, campus director. “We don’t want the demands of your life to prevent you from reaching all of your educational goals.”

Many people set New Year's resolutions but few of us keep them. In an article "If at First You Don't Succeed" by Janet Polivey and C.P. Herman, statistics show:
• 25% of New Year's resolutions will be abandoned in the first 15 weeks
• On average, people make the same New Year’s resolution 10 times
• Those who manage to keep a resolution six months or more have often tried five or six times before finally succeeding.

“The most important element to making a successful resolution is to set goals.,” Adamson said. “That is where Argosy University can help. Within a few months, when most people have abandoned their New Year’s resolutions you will have completed two to four courses and be well on your way to academic success.”
