I didn't think I was going to go to college. College is expensive. I came and visited Corban. And I knew something I wanted to do just because of that visit. But I saw the sticker price. And I was like, "Well, I can't do that." But then, with the help of my parents in the financial aid office, we broke it down. We recognize how much money I'd be getting from scholarships, we recognize working, and all these other different areas and like, "Okay, this is a possibility. I want to do this."
I Corban we have a lot of scholarships that we offer. We have music, theater, we have athletic scholarships available. We have an academic scholarship, and that's based upon your GPA. And then we have community college partnerships. We have Christian Worker-Dependent grants, and a lot more.
I spent a lot of time in the financial aid office two or three times a week. Just trying to find new scholarships, there's numerous websites and places you can get scholarships at and they walked alongside me with that and helped me out a lot.
We really want each student to be able to come attend but also finish their college degree here. And so we're going to work with them day in and day out if it is needed to give them the scholarships the loans, help them fill out the FAFSA, all those steps that are needed so that they can pursue their dreams, getting a college degree, and also making a difference in the world for Jesus Christ.
