    As much as I love Fisk, it is very costly, but not customer friendly, being that students are essentially customers of the business.When a student complains, actions may never be taken, leaving many people left upset. For this reason, many people transfer from Fisk.

    If you come from a small urban place then Fisk will definitely suit you well. With every new place you go you will always have to adjust, and you will know if Fisk is the place for you or not.

    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.
