On October 22nd, volunteers throughout the country will be out serving their communities and neighbors as part of Make a Difference Day. This special day was created in 1992 with the sole purpose of improving lives. As a WGU student, you have returned to school after spending time in the workplace with the goal of improving your life and opening new doors to opportunities for your career. You are also ensuring that you have the skills necessary to succeed in your field of expertise, which can make you an asset to your employer. You are making a difference in the lives of those with whom you will come in contact, and in your own life. If you have time this month, take advantage of your free time and volunteer in your community. Serving those around you can uplift the spirits of others, improve moods, and reduce stress.
As of September 28, there is a new way to provide your feedback on the courses you take at WGU using our adaptive End-of-Course Survey. When you complete a course, you will receive a notification with a link to the appropriate survey for the course. The survey is quick to take and each course survey will have a different set of questions. Log into your WGU account and learn more by watching this 1-minute video. Please take 5 minutes to give us feedback. This is your opportunity to help us make your WGU experience, and the experiences of other students, the best it can be.

Karen grew up in a big family with minimal means to provide for their basic needs and was led to believe that her circumstances would never change. Needing to work full-time, college didn’t seem to be in the cards for her. It wasn’t until she was 20 years old that she even learned she could get loans to help her earn a college degree – a moment that changed the course of her life.
WGU Student Ria says: “I always have one free day of the week for myself to spend uninterrupted time with family and friends, read magazines or a novel, go to church, brunch, etc. Monday through Friday I schedule study time and also get up 45 minutes before everyone else on Saturdays for a review. I look forward to that one free day. Then I work hard and intentionally the other six. Also, the Evernote app makes it easy to keep notes, flashcards, and even webinars on hand to study while on the go.”
