If youâ€™ve ventured into the Culver Academiesâ€™ Bird Sanctuary this spring, you may have noticed that the high ropes course has undergone quite a transformation over the winter. The new course, constructed over 240 hours by Woodcraft and Ropes Course Director Sonny Adkins, is about six times bigger than the previous oneâ€” with two levels and 18 elements, including two zipline exits.
There are four huge barriers to getting a college educationâ€”but they are not real barriers at all.
There are quite a few reasons for getting a college education and they are the obvious reasons you have already thought about. Your education is your planned effort to learn and build learning skills. A degree can help open doors to better jobs and build skills you need to create your own opportunities in business and life. A college degree is a useful signal to others that you can learn, and stay engaged in learning.
