My community college has invited me to join their Phi Theta Kappa club several times. However, I don't feel that there's much point in me joining because I am a remote out of state student. I don't that I would be very much involved in the club. The only benefit that I can think of is that it...

(Asking for my brother) Should I get my bachelors in computer information sciences, IT, or computer science? I was also considering my bachelors with an undergraduate cybersecurity certificate? Will I get a job if I have this combo?

I'm getting my associate's in accounting in May 2023. I discovered that if I took 3 more classes I could earn an HR management certificate. I'm really tempted by this, but it would cost about $2400. I'm also not sure if it would be worth it in the long run, as I might not get a bachelor's in...
Its cheaper that the public, 4 year universities that are close to me, and its accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Its tuition is also considerably cheaper. Yet, there's something about it that doesn't feel right. Maybe I'm just biased against private, for-profit universities. What...

My younger sister LOVES astronomy, and I think an astronomy minor would be a fun option for her.
My younger sister is really interested in astronomy and I'm encouraging her to major in it. However, when she asked me about career options, all that came to mind were NASA and aerospace engineering. I was wondering if there were any other careers out there and if they are in demand. Also,...
I've always wanted to be a writer. However, I've never considered making it my full-time job/career. At most, I would be a part-time writer. I have two main obstacles to writing: 1.) Time: normally, I would take workshops, free online classes, etc. to help improve my writing skills, but I...
I tend towards being somewhat shy and introverted. I'm not a misanthrope, but I find long periods of human interaction draining. This fact is one of the main reasons that I avoided work parties at my old job. The other reason was because I did not like 50% of my coworkers, and the idea of...
They seem like a really good option, but I would like to hear from people who have used them.
I don't really want to relocate for my job because I want to stay close to family. However, I feel like that there would be more job opportunities outside of Kansas.

I recently moved to Kansas, and was curious about its growing/dominant industries.
My new home town has a University which offers a MBA program, but I'm open to exploring other options.
Does it have something to do with their size, history, purpose, etc., or are they just synonyms?
I live really close to K-State, University of Kansas, and Washburn University. I'm also open to the idea of attending Wichita University. I would prefer to attend a public college/university over a private one.
Some articles that I've read claim that accounting will become automated in 20 years. I've also read that automation will merely decrease the need for accountants and/or make their workload easier. I don't want to enter a career in an obsolete profession.
I feel that this education path would combine my two major interests (math and business). If anyone's out there who has this degree combination, I'd really appreciate your advice!
