Do you need to fulfill a statistics requirement? Or do you prefer to take e-Pack® courses? Or perhaps you're interested in a course with a free textbook?

Beginning in the April 2017 term, the University will pilot a new e-Pack® course format: Principles of Statistics (STA-201). The first 25 students who register for the course in the April term will receive the STA-201 online textbook directly within the course itself - free of charge!

Taken 37 years ago, a graduate and her awe-inspired son sit backstage at the 1980 commencement ceremony. #ThrowbackThursday

Because commencement is always a special time, and because everyone loves a mystery, we’re asking any sleuths out there to help us identify the graduate and her son. If you find any more information on this picture, please let us know!

“I was attending an engineering school in Everett, Washington, and due to funding, they had to shut the doors. I already had my associate degree, and I was working for the Boeing Corporation, but I was almost done with my bachelor’s degree - I only had five courses left to complete! Then I found Thomas Edison.

I could complete courses pretty much any time I had free time. Now I work in the newspaper production industry, in the mechanical systems department. My schedule is 4-to-10, but sometimes I work overtime. So I was able to come home at night. I could work through all my chores; I’m a homeowner, so I have to cut the grass, I have painting, help my wife do things. Thankfully, Thomas Edison accepted a lot of my naval training, and they took all of my associate degree credits. It made things a lot easier for me to complete those last five classes!” - Daniel Hines, BSAST '14

Cover letters can be difficult to write and the most annoying part of any job search. So why do they matter in the hiring process? http://tesu.social/2lfMAjQ

“There are other CLEP® prep programs out there, but this one has the benefit of an expert who will guide students through the material and answer any questions they might have." - Marc Singer, vice provost, Center for the Assessment of Learning

TESU has partnered with Modern States Education Alliance to offer free, eight-week prep courses for two CLEP® examinations that can transfer into a TESU degree program. http://tesu.social/2l30veA

“I had my first child when I was 18 years old, so I didn’t have time to go to school. But now, my kids are all grown and out of the house, and it’s my turn. I work a fulltime job as a project accountant for a construction company and a part-time job as a real estate agent, so my time is limited. It was a challenging experience, and it was a lot of work, but I loved every minute of it. There are things that you learn in school that you just can’t learn in the real world. I found out that I love economics. It’s something that I never even knew I had an interest in! I’m now thinking of going back for my master’s degree because I kind of miss not having that excitement of school.” - Yolanda Burgan, BSBA '16

Do you have a final or midterm this week? If so, you might want to try the practice exam before taking the ‘real’ one.
