While the weak economy is showing signs of improvement, there are still many families in the Valley that are still being affected, but as Sandra Quintanilla tells us, education experts say many are turning to higher learning as the best option to get ahead during the recession.
Graduate student prospects packed the UT Pan American Annex at this year's Grad Fair. If the turnout at this year's fair is any indication, more people in the Valley are looking to further their education. In fact, organizers say the 4th annual event held at the UTPA Annex set a record high when some 540 people pre-registered and attended the fair to learn more about the 57 masters and 3 doctoral degree programa available at the institutioin.
