Some decisions have the power to transform your life. Choosing where you get your education is one of them. Here are specific reasons why University of Phoenix should be the choice for you.
Having a team of people to rely on is one thing. Having hundreds of thousands across the country is another. When you graduate, you automatically become a member of the Alumni Association. This means that wherever you live, chances are high you’ll be near someone who has earned the same type of education—and had the same experiences—you have.
The value of an education is only as good as the places it can take you. A University of Phoenix degree can connect you to many of today’s top employers, helping you get to the next stop in your career.
Larry Fitzgerald Jr.: When I was in school, Mom was battling cancer. Her main goal for me was to graduate from college — because she felt that with education, that’s something that nobody can ever take from you.
When I look at my son and I tell him that “I want you to complete your degree,” when I have mine in hand, it makes it a lot easier to press him about it.
[Speaking to his father, Larry Fitzgerald Sr.] I remember you coming down hard on us about the academics. If we didn’t maintain a certain grade point average, that, you know, we weren’t even going to be able to play.
Larry Fitzgerald Sr.: Education is that important to the Fitzgeralds. Your mother would’ve never married me without an education. And I would’ve never married her without one.
Larry Fitzgerald Jr.: I like to travel. University of Phoenix has the ideal program for somebody like myself. This is a tailor-made education because it allows me to work when it’s convenient for me. It just works perfectly. You know, I even studied in Antarctica this year.
I want to do something with my degree. I would love to be in the journalism field and do some broadcasting. My major is going to help me with those endeavors.
We do a camp here in Minnesota every year. You know, what’s the most important is that these young women and men, they learn skills that I feel are going to help them for life.
[Speaking to children at his Minnesota football camp] Hard work and dedication, teamwork, commitment to being better: Those are the things that I saw yesterday, and I want to continue to see those same things today.
I realized a couple of years ago that it wasn’t going to be easy; it was going to be a serious commitment. Your mind always needs to be jogged, pushed, be strained. The doors that would’ve been closed if I didn’t have my degree are now going to be open for me. And that’s the thing that’s most exciting.
