  • Holly Klingler, M.A., M.L.I.S., works in a library. But there is nothing quiet and contained about her day. Instead, she spends her hours darting between the needs of 540 libraries in northeast Ohio, providing training, leading discussions in strategic planning and teaching kids how to code. Klingler you might say is super librarian. Oh, and the classically trained philosopher also teaches online Bryant & Stratton students career development theory and practice. “I’m a bit of a...

  • Members of the Virginia Beach campus open Gayles Closet

    Gayle Cheeks-Harrell was a stickler for professionalism.

When she passed away last May, her son Eric Harrell, Virginia state director of marketing and communications at Bryant & Stratton College, wanted her legacy to live on. Today it does, through the Bryant & Stratton stude...

After entering nursing school, she quickly learned that the surgeons don’t necessarily have the most important job in the hospital. “Everything you do in the healthcare field is a big deal,” she tells her students. “Everything you do is important.

  • Last semester, I turned in a paper that was well written and thorough, but I lost points for errors that had little to do with content or material and everything to do with avoidable mistakes. I lost a few points because I forgot to italicize something in my references page and a few because I had forgotten to address one specific parameter that had been described in the directions. My professor still gave my assignment a great grade, but I felt disappointed that I hadn’t paid enough atten...

  • I have tried to improve my notetaking since I started my graduate program. Really, I’ve worked on improving this since high school, but I never have managed to find a real trick that has worked for me. I always take too many notes. In high school, everyone could count on me to take down every single word from the overhead projector, verbatim.
