Does the very idea of declaring a New Year’s resolution make you cringe, or does it bring a sense of hope for change in the upcoming year? January can be a time of reflection. Think about the past year: You can learn from your experiences and renew your priorities and goals.

As a WGU faculty member, it is my privilege to work with our talented, dedicated students. Seriously, you all are amazing. You juggle families, jobs, chores, and all the challenges of everyday life—and then you throw in school, too! We know that getting your degree isn’t easy, but there are lots of great resources here to help you.

At WGU, each student is assigned a personal faculty member to work with them as a mentor throughout their time at WGU. Additionally, each course has its own course mentors, subject-matter experts who are available to help students get through course material. Advice from your mentors is invaluable as you make your way through your online degree program. But we also want you to benefit from the wisdom of mentors not necessarily assigned to you, so occasionally, The Night Owl features advice from WGU mentors in colleges throughout the university.
