Exploring the Benefits of the Technical Support Center

In our final blog post in the “Fantastic Fall” testimonial series, students share their thoughts on the Campus Common’s Technical Support Center and the Technical Support team in general:

I'm quite familiar with the wonderful people in the Technical Support division. I have needed their assistance on many occasions and have found them to be most supportive in helping to resolve my issues. There was even one gentleman who assisted me when it was my computer that was acting up and not the school site. He did not hesitate to assist me even though he did not have to. Thanks gang!—Jamie Monaghan, BA Psychology

I have used Technical Support in the past as a student online when, for some reason, my computer decided I was not allowed to log into my classrooms. There is a lot of information within the Technical Support Center itself and if you cannot find what you need to know there, you can always call them at 1-866-4ARGOSY or send them an email at technicalsupport@argosy.edu. I had emailed and they got back to me within moments and explained that the problem was on Argosy’s side and fixed the issue so that I could stay on top of my school work. They will even give tips to help you if it is a problem you are having with your computer itself. Technical Support is an amazing tool that we are able to utilize!—Judy Williams, BA in Psychology

The Technical Support Center is one of my favorite places to visit whether online or via telephone. The support has been wonderful when I have not been able to gain entry into the classroom, or needed a system upgrade. I love that the technicians are well versed in various software and web browsers. They also provide excellent answers to my questions, even when they need to decipher the problem I'm describing.—Cherita Johnson-Morrow, EdD in Educational Leadership

I have used Technical Support many, many times! It is nice to know that if I ever have a problem in the classroom or even outside the classroom that I can make a phone call and someone is available to help me! I once had a problem accessing my textbook and started to panic! I talked to someone from Technical Support and they calmed me down, as well as fixed the problem! Technical Support is my friend and I have such peace of mind knowing that they are available!—Jennifer Hood, BA in Psychology

Your Guide to Responsible Borrowing: Part Four

Welcome to part 4 of Your Guide to Responsible Borrowing. Today, we’re looking at the value of an education.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Census Bureau EDUCATION PAYS! Workers with a bachelor’s degree earned an average of $53,976.00 in 2010. By contract, those with some college or an Associate’s degree earned an average of $39.884.00 during the same period; a difference of 74%. The average earning of those with just a high school degree in 2010 was $32,552.

Argosy University Students Share Their Thoughts on the Tutoring Center

In our last student testimonial blog post, we featured students’ comments on the Online Library. Today, we explore review their thoughts on the Tutoring Center:

The Tutoring Center contains information for writing styles, APA format, software tutorials like Microsoft Word and even tutorials for how to use Turnitin. All those different tutoring options are very helpful when accessing my classroom and completing assignments. I'm glad Argosy has the Tutoring Center; it makes it easy to find help instead of opening multiple windows on my computer to search for citation hints or formatting word to write my papers.—Stephanie Stouffe, BA in Psychology

The Tutoring Center is the most helpful part of taking classes online. You can get help for almost anything there. There are tutorials for Turnitin, MLA, APA, general software, and more. There are live online tutors that can help you through any slump. I have used the Tutoring Center several times when I just did not seem to understand my courses or the resources that I was asked to use. This is the perfect place for this little guy because having the Tutoring Center has proven to be a life saver. Thank you, Argosy University, for taking the time to develop such an in depth tutoring option. –Kim Gentry, BA in Psychology

The Tutoring Center has helped me with APA format. I was rusty on APA format, since I graduated with my bachelor's in 2005. The link for the APA help site helped me tremendously. I also used the Turnitin training tutorial. I am an online student and understanding Turnitin is very important to my success. I appreciate this tutorial. I have not used the online tutoring services, but I am thankful these services are available if I need them in the future.—Kelly Cleveland, MA in Forensic Psychology

I know all too well the benefits of reaching out to the Tutoring Center to ask for help in the past. I can remember back when I had been struggling trying to keep up with my Statistics class and the understanding part of this class and they helped me quite a bit. I hope I don’t ever have to take Statistics again, but if I do, I’m definitely returning to the good people at the Tutoring Center. They make learning easy with the detailed steps to find a solution for any specific problems you may be having. –Tamika FranklinAmos, BA in Psychology
