Argosy University, Online Programs recently helped the Phoenix Good Works Committee by assisting in the organization’s annual water drive. The donated water was taken to the Phoenix Rescue Mission, a community organization mobilized to transform lives and end hunger and homelessness.
The water drive, dubbed Code: Red – Summer Heat Relief, led to a healthy competition between Argosy University, Online Programs finance, academics, and admissions teams—all of which were vying to bring in the largest amounts of water to donate. The combined effort resulted in 34,265 bottles (983 cases) of water for donation.
The finance team emerged victorious in the challenge and was awarded with a jeans day and pizza and ice cream party.

Professor Brian Sharpless, instructor, the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University | Northern Virginia, was recently quoted in the Time Magazine article, “What It’s Like to Have Exploding Head Syndrome.” The syndrome occurs as a person is falling asleep. They typically hear a loud noise, explosion of sound, then see a flash of light.
Sharpless, who has led studies on Exploding Head Syndrome (EHS), explained that as people fall asleep, their auditory and visual neurons are normally inhibited. “What we think happens during EHS is that instead of shutting down, these neurons fire all at once,” he said. “When they do, they create a perception of sound, which is why sufferers hear the loud noises."
