ST. CLOUD -- Whether you're looking to go back to school, or get a better degree, the new year is a good time to start.

For those of you wanting to get a better education, St. Cloud Technical and Community College is willing to help.

Heidi Everett is the Communication Director at the college. She says they offer short term programs for those looking to get back in the swing of school.

The college has a wide range of students that attend so even if you have been away from school for years, don't let that stop you.

Everett says for those looking to start their new year's resolution now, you need to wait until summer, but there are things you can do now.

St. Cloud Technical and Community College has a 97 percent job placement rate. And if getting a better education is on your list, your hard work will pay off.

Everett says you can visit their website to check out their many programs. Or, set up a campus tour to help with your goals of getting a better education.

Coming up tomorrow (Friday) we will have some tips for those who have an interest in volunteering.
