Copper State of Mind

Independence Day

The recent news detailing the lengths to which celebrities went to get their kids into college is just baffling. What kind of message is that sending? Do you not think your kid is smart enough to make it without you buying their way in? Doesn’t hard work and setting your mind to something mean anything anymore?

If you are successful at something because you cheated, chances are you’re going to pay for it. In this case, not only did the kid pay the ultimate price, so did the parent with cancelled contracts and possible jail time.

Was it worth it?

Park University, a not-for-profit liberal arts college based in Missouri, will open a new campus in Gilbert. Beginning with fall term on Monday, Oct. 15, it will offer undergraduate and graduate courses and programs in business, communications, criminal justice, health care administration, education and public administration to adult learners in accelerated, eight-week evening classes.

With the opening of this campus, the university is expanding its Arizona footprint while meeting more students’ needs through the transformative power of higher education. Park already has campuses at Luke Air Force Base (Glendale) and at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (Tucson).
