    GOOD BUT EXPENSIVE COLLEGE

    This college gave me the biggest scholarship. Most students here say that they chose this college also because of this. It tends to give students a huge scholarship package. It also has a great location, since I wanted to go to college in a sort of big city.


    Course Curriculum - 

    This is a liberal arts college, so the art majors are all really good. The professors like their job and teaching the students important information. Other majors relating to science and maths are also really good and have a higher level of difficulty. The only major that doesn't really have a good curriculum is video game development.

    MY JOURNEY IN SAINT EDWARD'S UNIVERSITY

    It's close to home, so I can be a commuter. I also got a very good scholarship, along with some additional financial aid. Also, it's a small campus which means I get more attention. Additionally, they let your dual credits transfer without taking the GPA!


    Course Curriculum - 

    I actually like how the business degree plan goes, because all of the majors go hand in hand, so it's easy to double major. I don't like how hard the gen-Ed English classes are, but I do like the culture classes!
