Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) December 15, 2006
Closed college campuses during winter break open the door for prospective students to learn more about schools and career education on LocalEdu.com. The anticipated crowded and expensive holiday travel season also makes college campus visits seemingly impractical, making resources like the location-specific school search tool on LocalEdu.com all the more necessary.
According to the Expedia Travel Trendwatch-Fall/Holiday Travel, hotel rates are on the rise and airlines are expected to book planes at 90 to 100 percent capacity. Overall, travelers can expect peak prices and crowds to match holiday demand. Even if price isn't an issue, the unpredictability of winter weather may leave travelers snowed-in at airports. On LocalEdu.com students can research continuing education in any location without risking the mayhem of holiday travel.
Students pursuing continuing education should consider location along with academic or technical training options. The College Board reminds students that a school's location can hugely impact the educational experience. Students should understand what they want from a school's location before they decide on a school. In addition to a school directory, LocalEdu.com provides articles about specific subjects and degrees in specific locations. (http://www.localedu.com/resources.php)
Through her twenty years as a professional educator, Wendy Croix, PhD understands how important it is that students go to school in a location of their choice. Dr. Croix states: "Students can excel in the classroom, but so much more learning happens in the broader environment. I want all students to find a location where they can thrive as students and human beings. Students should learn as much as they can about schools and their locations before making a decision."
On LocalEdu.com students can search for traditional or online educational opportunities by state or zip code. The site also provides a school directory and information for career education in Canada, a potential student can learn about Business, Healthcare, or Art and Design Programs as far as Prince Edward Island.
