    Merritt College is very affordable. I was surprised at how nice the campus and all the facilities were the first time I visited. The level of knowledge and expertise from the professors is mind boggling too.

    I am a proud father of five, wanna be able to show them threw examples of my life the right way to go. Talk is cheap, and although communication is a key aspect to achieving ones goals you have to lead by example.

    Community College is a real good route for only $38 per unit, you can save a lot more than paying for classes at a university. Financial Aid is always helpful when available.
