    Just being in college is a scene I won't be able to recieve back at home. Living the campus life and enjoying the opprotunities college have to offer is just amazing. I would say to anyone college is defiantly a place to go if you want to be successful and progress yourself into an adult.

    College is expensive but not at State. You can pay less and get the same education as a private university. I would know. I transferred my sophomore year from a private university to West Virginia State University.
