Go back to school! Learn how!

Posted By on Thu, Oct 7, 2010 at 2:45 PM

High unemployment, outsourcing, and continuing layoffs have this weird tendency to depress people.

C'mon! Look on the bright side. This is your big chance to go back to school and finally get that degree you always wanted (and live off student loans until the economy recovers). What a golden opportunity!

OK, I may be overplaying this a little. On the other hand, a lot of people are hitting the books these days, and it seems like a good plan. Going back to school can be confusing, however. What degree should you pursue? What are the prerequisites? How much is this going to cost?

Good news: You can get your questions answered at UCCS' upcoming open house. Here's the rundown:
