An Associate of Arts (A.A) undergraduate degree provides peace of mind, credibility in a professional career, increased earning potential, and prepares students to further their education with addition degrees. Instead of just having credit hours toward a degree, in two years you could earn your A.A. degree and enter your profession. If you're a high school graduate interested in beginning a career in health care, an A.A. in Biological Sciences could be for you.

Isn't it true that we can be our own worst enemy? We used to build immaculate spaceships out of cardboard boxes and be beautiful ballerinas with an audience of stuffed animals. But somewhere along the way, we stopped dreaming outside the realm of what seemed realistic. Probably because we experienced failure to some degree, someone rejected us, we didn't get the job, pass the test, or make the team. We were made fun of, or didn't get invited to the party.
When I moved from my small town in Oklahoma to attend Cleveland University-Kansas City in Overland Park, Kansas, I was pretty nervous. I moved into an apartment on my own and I didn't know anyone in the area. My main focus was to study hard and do well in my classes, but I was hopeful that I would meet some great people along the way. Luckily, on my very first day, at orientation, I sat down at a table of girls and we have all been friends ever since.
When it comes to social activities in college, there are many ways to avoid being left behind, but you've got to make it happen. Going to class and studying are important, but if you find yourself bored or feeling disconnected from the college experience, it's time to connect with classmates outside of class. The easiest way to connect socially with other students is to get involved in some extracurricular activities, and the best way to do that is with campus clubs.
I first visited Cleveland University-Kansas City (CUKC) at a spring open house event. While it was nerve-wracking, as soon as I walked in the door, I was greeted with smiles and immediately I felt at home. Now as a campus ambassador, I welcome prospective students to campus.
