Inching toward the $100,000 sticker price 04/05/2024

As four-year institutions are inching toward the $100,000 per year mark, DIU is committed to keeping higher-ed affordable. You can finish an entire BA for an estimated $45,600 plus fees and housing. Save even more money by starting early and taking dual enrollment classes for $100/credit hour. You don't have to go into crushing debt to get a college degree.

Inching toward the $100,000 sticker price Some selective institutions are expected to hit six figures soon, though such pricing will likely have more of a psychological and political impact than a financial one.

The Danger of Living in the Future or the Past 03/28/2024

"Our human capacity to relish things of the past or to peek into the future possibilities is a wonderful asset and an incredible gift. But these can also draw us away from the joy of living, that is, the present."

The Danger of Living in the Future or the Past The present is where real experiences and real people exist. It’s the world of the unexpected, the wonderful and the unfair; but it is also the place where Christ tells us to live.
