2020. This number represents the coming new year, but it’s also about vision. And our students and alum have got it.
Each year, we take part in the time-honored tradition of celebrating the University of Arizona Global Campus community’s goals and aspirations for the coming 365 days. And this time is no different.
We recently posted in our Connections Facebook group the question:
“What are your thoughts on 2019, and what are your resolutions heading into 2020?”
Here, we present some of the most inspiring and hopeful responses shared so far. Read on, and get inspired for the year ahead!

Thank you to all the students and alumni who shared their thoughts on the coming new year. And good luck to all of you who are working toward your 2020 goals.
