Choose Your Words Wisely!

Shout it Out Rarely does a person get an opportunity to address a nation or the world; it’s usually during times of great hardship or war. Even then, few are able to capture our attention for any length of time. It takes a certain skill, but given the right circumstances and speaker, words can start a movement or create change. Words can rally a nation to stand together or they can insight others to take action against injustice.

Help! I Lost My Scholarship…Now What?

Scholarship Help I bet you thought that applying for scholarships was the hardest part of winning free money for college, right? Guess again. Although it does take some time to complete scholarship applications and craft those amazing essays, keeping them can be an even greater responsibility.

You know the one; golden arches beckon to you and a certain bell begs you to make a run for the border. The smell of lightly salted French fries wafts in the air and the tingle of carbonated bubbles tickles your nose. Deep down you know it’s bad for you, but it just tastes so good!

Call me crazy, but if you want to eat your next fast food meal guilt-free, consider visiting some of the following companies the next time you get hungry. Continue Reading…


10 Questions You Should Ask the Financial Aid Office

Financial Aid Help When I started the college planning process, I never thought about how I was going to pay for it all. Like some students, I assumed my stellar grades and extensive extracurricular activities would automatically have schools throwing money at me. Guess what? That never happened.
