Mid-Continent University’s Advantage Starts Second Associate Degree Group Locally in Danville

Mid-Continent University’s Advantage has started another associate degree group locally right in Danville. Tiffany Johnson, Danville’s Admissions Representative for Advantage, said, “It has been a wonderful opportunity to work with the local Danville residents. Mid-Continent’s format works for many adults. With classes one night a week, people are still able to work full-time or look for employment. We are looking forward to having more adults from the Danville area reaching to achieve their educational goals. This is a great group of folks. I have enjoyed meeting with them and getting to know them. We still have spots available if anyone else is interested in this opportunity to go back to school with other adults.”

Jackie Imhoff, Mid-Continent University’s Vice President for Adult Programs, comments, “We are excited to provide this opportunity for the completion of an associate degree in Danville. We have also had enough interest that we will be able to offer the full four years of college here in Danville and area residents will be able to complete their full four year bachelor degree. MCU works very hard to remove barriers that adults face in completing their education. The number of adults responding from the Danville area has been amazing. We offer classes in approximately 27 communities throughout Kentucky, southern Illinois, and completely online. Education remains the best way for a community and individuals to work for a brighter future.”

Adults have challenges with access to education. Bringing classes to the adult’s own community that meet just one night a week makes the goal of achieving one's degree much more feasible for area residents. When adults learn that classes are this convenient, their hope for a college education is revived. This opens a pathway to success that may not have been available previously. Sometimes adults worry that their schedule could change or they could find a job in another part of the country. If this happens, Mid-Continent also offers the associate, bachelor and master degrees ONLINE. There is no circumstance that can keep someone from successfully completing a degree if he/she is willing to work at it.

Mid-Continent University is a private, non-profit, Southern Baptist affiliated organization. MCU is regionally accredited and headquartered in Mayfield, Kentucky. For more information on ADVANTAGE in the Danville area, call Tiffany at 270-705-2817 or email her at tjohnson@midcontinent.edu
