People who are looking for a greater purpose could turn to Dahn Yoga as a way to relax and learn more about themselves. However, there is also the principle of increasing one's knowledge in an effort to enrich the mind.
Pursuing a higher degree can be a challenge, particularly for those who cannot afford it. Some students want to begin their academic careers in a two-year program before moving to a four-year curriculum and one school is looking to help them pursue this goal.
Ashford University is now partnering up with a number of community colleges across the country to allow students to transfer up to 90 credits toward a bachelor's degree. Some of the schools that are involved include Georgia Military College, Luna Community College in New Mexico, the Lone Star College System and the San Bernardino Valley College in Southern California.
"Ashford University strives to increase educational opportunities for nontraditional learners," said Elizabeth Tice, president of the school. "It's a great compliment to our program that local and community educators are working with us to build articulation agreements that make four-year Ashford degrees an easy progression for their students."
