is college worth it

Is College Still Worth It?

Are you worried that the cost of college has become too much or that a college education isn’t worth it anymore? It’s understandable when you see stories about this year’s college graduates leaving with an average of $33,000 in student loan debt. Ouch! That’s enough to make anyone think twice about enrolling. But, what you may neglect to consider is the benefits package you will receive by earning a degree. Yes, we know that there are people who have been successful without a college diploma (Bill Gates for one), but in general, your earning potential drops considerably without that little piece of paper. There are other benefits, too. For example, college is a place where you can be exposed (in more ways than one!) to other cultures and new ways of thinking. It will challenge your view of the world and even yourself. You’ll also have the opportunity to step outside your comfort zone, and you may find a new career or life path. Some would even argue that what you gain in knowledge and life experiences at college is priceless.

Check Out Our New Periodic Table of Scholarships!

Do you remember your high school or college chemistry class? You probably had your share of fun trying weird experiments or mixing chemicals, but there may have been one thing you really hated to learn…the periodic table of elements. memorizing elementsSure, a few elements were pretty easy to memorize with some creative tactics (AU, I want some gold!), but a lot of it made absolutely no sense. For example, why is potassium represented by the letter K, and why is FE used for iron? There’s proably a perfectly logical explanation (look them up on Google) why those letters are used, but that doesn’t make it any easier to remember them. Thankfully, ScholarshipExperts.com has found a way to use the periodic table in a manner that makes perfect sense…with scholarships!

shout it out scholarship

Want a Scholarship? Just Shout It Out!

Have you ever just wanted to scream out something at the top of your lungs? Maybe you came across a derogatory comment on social media or saw a tweet that made absolutely no sense? Or, perhaps it was a discussion in one of your classes that brought you to the point of eruption? Sometimes, you just want to grab someone and see if you can shake the stupid out of them. Whatever the catalyst, we’ve all been there. Thanks to Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels, it’s easier than ever to express your opinion, share your knowledge, or just vent about what’s driving you insane. In fact, a single tweet can go around the world in mere seconds. That’s a pretty powerful platform when you think about it, and yet we generally use it to tell the world what we’re eating or crack jokes about the latest ‘ice bucket’ fails on YouTube. Just imagine what we could accomplish if we actually started to use these social outlets to spread good ideas or empower people. The possibilities would be endless.

Students are asking celebrities, millionaires, and large corporations to step up and help them make their college dreams a reality. One company, though, has already accepted that challenge, but well before a single tweet ever hit the stream.
