Congratulations to the following students who were elected into the following offices!     History of Alpha Sigma Lambda Alpha Sigma Lambda is a nationally recognized honor society devoted to the advancement of scholarship and to the recognition of full- and part-time non-traditional adult students. The founding chapter was established in 1946 by Dr. Rollin Posey, Dean of University College at Northwestern University, to recognize the accomplishments of those returning to academic pursuits after the close of World War II.  Dr. Posey realized that a measure of encouragement and recognition accorded an adult student’s scholastic achievement at an early stage of his/her program could provide the thrust of desire to achieve his/her educational objectives.  Dr. Posey founded a society, Alpha Sigma Lambda, to honor those dedicated adult students, who while adroitly handling their life responsibilities, achieve and maintain high scholastic standards.

What is a college degree worth today?

What is your college degree worth.

A new report from the State Higher Education Executive Officers points out that skepticism about the value of a college degree is just off base: “…the evidence clearly demonstrates the value of a college education. According to our analysis of U.S. Census data, those who obtain a bachelor’s degree have a median income of $50,360 compared to a median of $29,423 for people with only a high school diploma. An associate’s degree leads to a median income of $38,607, more than $9,000 higher than a high school diploma. Those with a graduate degree have a median income of $68,064, 35.2 percent more than those with a bachelor’s degree. Additionally, The College Advantage: Weathering the Economic Storm, from the Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, shows that workers without a college degree have been significantly worse off in the recent economic downturn than those who have attended college. Four out of every five jobs lost
