These days, opportunities to continue our education abound. While we are fortunate to have such a range of possibilities, the options can be overwhelming. We can choose nearly anything, from casual and informal online classes in pastry arts or floral design to graduate and professional school programs in the humanities or health sciences.

Taking an interest in something outside of work just might benefit your career and expand your social and professional networks, too.
