New Blog Encourages College Students To Stay The Course


One of the biggest challenges facing college students is the desire to quit school before obtaining their degree. Money, time, and a whole host of other issues can conspire to encourage students to drop out of college, perhaps never to return.

Yorktown University, which describes itself as an accredited internet university based in Denver, BloggingColorado, is trying to help financially challenged students to stay in college. To that end, the school has created a blog, Don’t Quit U., whose “… purpose is to exchange notes and our thoughts about the high cost of college tuition and to seek ways by which to deal with this crisis.”

The blog features news stories, essays and links to podcasts and videos including a growing listing of podcasts of college courses that are offered to the public free of charge. These courses are taught at a number of different colleges and can be one way for students to reduce the cost of their education. At the very least, when credit isn’t given, free online courses can help keep students stimulated as they consider different ways to finance their education.

Don’t Quit U. is seeking reader participation in the form of sharing personal stories on how people are managing during the current financial aid crisis. Visitors are encouraged to sign up on for the blog, log-in, and to leave their personal experiences which will then be featured in the “Your Stories” section of the blog once approved.

One of the most recent webcasts was held just yesterday, an event that discussed the meaning of Thanksgiving. That discussion featured Dr. William Allen and Dr. Carey Roberts, who are specialists in the colonial and early national period of American government. It was disseminated by BlogTalkRadio where listeners were able to log on for live chat.

For more information about Don’t Quit U. and to follow the programs being offered, check out the blog directly to explore the latest news and happenings.
