F1 Visas: What is it and how do I get one?

Are you an international student looking to receive a US student visa? University of the Cumberlands welcomes students from over 40 countries on an annual basis, so we have knowledge on how this procedure works. This process may seem complex at the outset, and with good reason, but we have put together a blog on what is needed for this task.

Keeping the Christian Faith in a Criminal Justice Career

Turn on your TV to any channel in any city and you can find some sort of negative press about individuals in a law enforcement position. Unfortunately, less often, you might find a story about a random kind act. The reality though is that there are thousands of these kind acts that are happening daily. The ideal criminal justice professional infuses honor and integrity into every pursuit, both on and off the job.

Make Time to Practice Your Faith

Today's college students are busier than ever. Between studying, work, extra-curricular activities, and family obligations, it can be difficult to set aside time for anything else. As a result, the most important things often fall by the wayside. Many students find that, despite attending Christ-centered universities and studying scripture on a regular basis, that they don't actually take the time to pray or otherwise integrate faith into their daily routine. If this is difficult for you too, consider implementing the following strategies:

Reduce Chances of Chronic Disease At Any Age With These Health Tips

With the incidence of chronic disease becoming more prevalent every day, many people have come to believe that medical problems are inevitable as they age. Chronic conditions like diabetes, obesity and heart disease cause a tremendous financial burden for society, and they represent some of the world’s most common causes of death.

Ways to Stay Focused During Your Summer Courses

The summer months are an ideal opportunity to work on completing your education. Class sizes are smaller, your schedule may be a bit lighter, and it puts you that much closer to completing your degree. Yet, it’s hard to stay motivated and focused on school when you could be heading to a friend’s barbeque or off to the pool every day. How can you keep your eye on the prize and achieve your goals of completing your education during the warm months of summer? Online summer courses are a must for many of today's graduate students.

Americans set aside five days each May to honor and thank the professionals in our country who bear the huge responsibility for inspiring and educating our nation’s youth. This year the celebration takes place May 2 through 6.

As you pursue a Master of Science in Health and Human Performance, pay careful attention to your long-term career path, as the knowledge you gain now could set you up for future success in gym management or ownership.
