It’s Not All About…

The money! College is not all about the money! On Thursday, I went back to my high school to visit some of my teachers and see how were they doing. While I was there I saw a lot of the now, upperclassmen, that I used to be in yearbook with and some other extracurricular activities. It was only last year that I was in their position looking at colleges and trying to decide where to go. Now, as many of them continue to look and find out what is the best fit for them they all had one thing to say about Butler, “It is too expensive!”

I thought the same thing before coming to Butler. I never thought there would be anyway my parents or myself would be able to afford Butler, but I never let that be a deciding factor. I applied to 5 private schools and 2 public and although my parents thought I was crazy and would never get the money for private I found a way. Private schools are just as attainable as public. Even though the economy may be doing bad, there is so much money floating around in scholarships, grants, and so on. If there is anything that comes out of this rant, DO NOT let money make your decision.

As long as you work hard, and know your goals you can achieve anything you want. That may sound extremely cheesy but it’s true. I knew I wanted a private school, and I knew that no matter what I would have to search for the money, but with Butler the money found me. My admissions counselor saw that I met the criteria for a scholarship and I was invited to attend an interview. In the end I received the scholarship.

College is a big decision, but don’t allow your decision to come solely down to money. Now I have to get back to studying!

Yesterday Butler basketball had their first official practice! Check out this video about Ronald Nored as they follow him through the season!
