Real information on continuing your college education

Whether you are getting your degree, looking to finish your degree, or considering graduate school, it’s likely you have questions. That’s why we are holding a series of Coffee Talks: College Degree Q & As so you can learn more about how to start, finish, or continue your education.

WSU-R will hold five Coffee Talks: College Degree Q & As sessions starting Oct. 11. Admissions Advisor, Sammie Eckerson will be hanging out at one of the local coffee shops listed below, providing information and advice, and answering your questions.

She will also be handing out $5 gift cards while they last, for a free coffee drink.

Who should stop by?

Anyone who has thought about:

  •  starting your education
  •  finishing up your bachelor’s degree
  • getting your graduate degree

No matter where you are in the process; “a fleeting thought that has run through my mind” to, “come hell or high water I’m going to finish my degree!”  Or even if you’re simply gathering information for someone else, you will find these Coffee Talks valuable.

Flexible Drop-In Events

These are drop-in events. We understand your schedules are busy which is why finishing your degree in today’s world must also be flexible.

Rochester is a great place to continue your education, and Sammie will share some of this data and information with you.

For instance, did you know that a tremendous opportunity exists in Rochester and Southeast Minnesota for those who pursue an education in Social Work – one of the many majors offered right here in Rochester. Social Work is actually quite lucrative, especially in Minnesota. The medium Social Worker salary in Minnesota is $64,300. That’s $14,830 more than the national average according to the US Department of Labor.

Approximately 35% of people in the US now have a four-year degree according to Getting or finishing your degree is a worthwhile investment if you wish to increase your ability to earn money throughout your lifetime and advance in your career.

There’s a lot of confusing chatter on social media about the value of a college degree, however, research shows that college graduates, on average, earned 56% more than high school grads, according to data compiled by the Economic Policy Institute, and the gap is accelerating.

Transferring to a new college can seem messy and confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. People like Sammie have the knowledge and the ability to guide you.

Consider stopping by one of our informational Coffee Talk sessions. Who knows it may change your life!

These sessions are informal and conversational – bring a friend!
