In a new effort to educate adult learners, the University of Northern Iowa is expanding a part of its business program. The college is adding a more flexible degree option for students who are at a different stage in their life and cannot fully commit to a full-time university schedule.

University faculty expanded the Management: Business Administration Bachelors of Arts degree program to include a fully part-time and online option.

“The program prepares students to succeed in a variety of organizational roles by providing a core business education and building a breadth of needed workplace competencies,” said UNI business professor Atul Mitra in a press release.

In that statement, university officials gave some more details about the class itself. Those who plan to take the class will have an academic standard equal to the in person and full time students. The classes will be taught by the very same faculty as the full time counterparts.

2020 saw the creation of this specific degree, and the program marks the second fully online and flexible program at the university.

Roseanne Barr Abandoned Iowa Mansion in Eldon, IA

I fell into a rabbit hole when I found out that Roseanne Barr almost had a mansion in Iowa. After seeing the current state of the property on Facebook, I was amazed that such an extravagant project could be so quickly overtaken by nature. Only two hours away from Waterloo, this abandoned field could have hosted some of the coolest and elite Hollywood parties in the Midwest. The current photos were taken by Gable Fry on a recent trip he took.
