We all know how important education is but we also know that we are also busy and often times don’t take time for ourselves. Make 2016 the year for finishing your college degree, continuing your education, or even starting your education with WGU. I love that WGU is a University was established in 2013 through a partnership with nationally recognized Western Governors University, WGU Missouri is open to all qualified Missouri residents. The university is nonprofit and self-sustaining on flat-rate tuition of about $6,000 per year for most programs.
