    In order to experience BVU (or whatever college you decide) in a positive way, I strongly believe in keeping up with your financial aid and applying for scholarships. School can get expensive, so make sure you don't let that affect your college experience negatively.

    Classes are only 8 weeks long so make sure to have your books on the first day of class because you will start work right away.
