Parkland College’s first Degree Completion Day event is coming this Wednesday, Feb. 22.
But you might ask, “Why should I graduate? I’m getting my bachelor’s degree in a couple of years.” Here why:
- Who wants you to graduate? Your parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, cousins, best friend, boyfriend, girlfriend, favorite Parkland Instructor, advisor—all those that care about you, that’s who. It’s not always just about what you want.
- You have spent countless hours in class and trip after trip to Parkland. Why wouldn’t you want to graduate?
- It looks good on your Parkland transcript, shows accomplishment on your resume, and can enable you to move up in the workplace. If you are transferring to a university, it can make for a smoother transition and save you from having to take extra general education courses at that university.
- If you are completing a career program, graduation may be required to verify with future employers. Probably most important of all, you’ve earned it!
Come out to Degree Completion Day in the U building from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and find out more about graduating and how it could benefit you.
