Countdown to Commencement: 11 Days
If you can't make it to Commencement, you can watch the ceremony live on Friday, July 11, 2014 at 3 pm ET. Congratulations to all the graduates, and welcome to the Excelsior College Alumni Association!
Commencement Stories
If you aren't able to watch the live Webcast of Commencement, you can still be inspired by the Excelsior grads who are following in your footsteps. Log on to Commencement Stories on Excelsior Life to read about the personal and educational journeys of a few of this year's outstanding graduates.
Considering Another Degree?
If you're considering earning a second (or third) degree, take a look at the changes to the College's tuition rates and fees, which go into effect on July 1, 2014. The changes affect some—but not all—civilian students.
Job Search Vacay? No Way!
Sure, the sun is shining and the weather is warm, but now is not the time to take a summer vacation from that job search! Make the most of the summer by utilizing the plethora of career advice articles and videos available to alumni through Excelsior's Career Center.
Excelsior ReView Now Available
Be swept along the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Witness a softly flowing Moroccan tide pool. Experience the beauty of stained glass leaves. All this and more in Issue #4 of the College's online publication focused on the creative and artistic talents of Excelsior alumni and the rest of the College community.
Do You Have the Write Stuff?
Wish you were a more skilled or confident writer? Log on to Excelsior's new media-rich online writing lab (OWL). Free and open to the general public, the Excelsior College OWL covers the writing process, grammar, digital writing, essays, avoiding plagiarism, writing with sources, and ESL writing.
New Veteran Partnerships
Excelsior's newest veteran education partnerships include the United States Army Warrant Officer Association and the Fleet Reserve Association. If you know a veteran who might benefit from either of these partnerships, you can help by connecting them to a Veterans Service and Outreach staff member.
Goals and Gifts
Does World Cup-fever have you obsessed with goals? Take a break from soccer and think about your financial goals for a moment. No matter your intent, there is a charitable gift to fit every objective and a way for you to help a cause close to your heart. Begin planning with this chart, which details a gift vehicle for every goal.
