paying for school

The best college advice that I can offer is to apply for as many scholarships as you can. When I initially started the college process I hadn’t applied for many scholarships, so my parents had to pay out of pocket which made our financial situation more of a struggle. However, once I started classes and the semester had passed I started to receive scholarships for good merit and based upon demographic information listed on my FAFSA. I would say to definitely use scholarship search engines such as Fastweb, Scholarship Central, and the Scholarship foundation of St. Louis. All of these are great resources for additional money to ensure school is not a hassle for you. I know that some of the applications are tedious, however if you take the time to complete the required information you will be more prone to win scholarships. In addition to utilizing the internet you should also do your best to perform academically well as there are a lot of perks tied to maintaining a GPA above 3.0. Over the past 2 years here at Fontbonne I have received 3 or more scholarships based upon my performance both in and outside of the classroom. I say this to let you know that although college is expensive, there are loopholes that you can get through to make the process much easier.


When I was searching for colleges, there were many factors weighing into which college I would attend, and I made the best choice after considering all of those factors. Obviously, one huge factor was money, and how much tuition assistance I would receive from each school I was interested in played into that decision as well. However, money was not the only factor. I also considered what school would work best for me in terms of the learning environment. Personally — and everyone is different — I know I would struggle more in a large lecture hall with over 100 students in a classroom with me. I would feel more intimidated and less likely to ask questions. I also know that if my classes were that big, the teacher would have no clue who I really was, and I would feel as though the teachers were hard to approach to ask questions if they did not see me everyday and understand that I might have questions about a lesson. That was a huge factor that played into the decision. Once I knew that the money situation was something we could work with, and I liked the class size a lot, I also liked that Fontbonne was just 15 minutes from home, so I could live on campus, but also be able to head home occasionally on the weekend if I wanted. Then, knowing that it was a Catholic university also was appealing to me because I knew I would be able to attend Mass on campus and might have an easier time keeping up my faith life at a place that shares my beliefs.
