UW College Chat via Twitter
Wednesday, November 14, 2012 8:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. ET
Is it the right time to go back to school? Is there ever really a "right" time? Join the University of Wisconsin College Chat on Twitter to be connected with women who share the same questions about returning to college: is an online degree right for me? How will I juggle work and family with school? How will an online degree benefit my career? The University of Wisconsin Online Bachelor of Professional Studies and the University of Wisconsin Colleges Online are partnering with the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) to host a one-hour College Chat via Twitter to provide tips, advice and a wealth of networking resources for returning students.
"There's a whole conversation out there among women who dream of returning to school but don't know where to start," said Cindy Burns, national director of local chapters, NAPW. "The College Chat will give participants the opportunity to tap into a panel of experts about online degrees, either associate or bachelor's. Not only will they learn about the many options that exist, they will hear from fellow women who have made the leap and succeeded."
Four participants will win prizes ranging from a Kindle Fire valued at $200 to a one-year "NAPW Experience" membership worth $500. To enter, guests will Tweet answers to prize questions during the chat. If you think the time is right to expand your credentials with an online degree, join the University of Wisconsin College Chat at #Return2Learn for helpful tools to get started.
