While Worcester State University has treated me well, it is not regarded as a school with a "big" name. I am pursuing a Master in Health Care Industry, a degree WSU offers as a 2 year program. Should I transfer to get the "big" name, or stay at WSU?

How does someone choose between the income of a job or the happiness it will bring?

I think it's fair to say that a decent chunk of people will say they chose a certain job because in the long run they'd be happy to show up there everyday. The side I don't usually hear from are the people that chose a specific career solely based on the amount of money they'd make. I wanted to...

What are the differences between education at a public university and a private university, if any?

Many teens struggle to decide between attending a public or a private university. Should one be valued more than the other? If so, why? Personally, I believe it depends on the major one is pursuing. #public #private #university #cost #value...
