    I have a Presidential Scholarship here (a full ride), and almost EVERYONE I know here has some type of scholarship. Fisk is worth every penny, though.

    I have a full academic scholarship to this institution so I can't comment as much on this as some of my peers. However I love this institution and as long as one can afford it they come back for more every semester.
