When I decided to attend a liberal arts school down the road from my house, I thought I was making a sizable compromise, however i was going to this tiny school instead of this large out-of-state school that is in the top 20 of the whole entire country.
I have wanted to go to that school since I was a child, as it is in the neighborhood where I was born and the same school my Grandfather attended.
Getting in as a potential undergrad was 1 of the most pride-inducing moments of my entire life. At the same time, I had to be mature and realize that my dream school cost too much money! The potential debt of just a single school year at that school would dwarf the total debt I had after more than three years at the small liberal arts school down the road from my house. While it’s still daunting to see that amount of debt on my credit report, it’s a lot better than $200,000. That’s roughly how much money it would have cost if I had gone to this big state school instead of the cheap liberal arts school near my parents’ house. I enjoyed my time there and the numerous classes I had a occasion to attend while I was in my more than three years of undergraduate school. I enjoyed the art classes, especially sculpting. Once we showed our comprehension with cardboard sculpting, we l gained welding and started sculpting with steel rebar tie wire. The school would often get coils of black bar steel rebar tie wire from numerous building companys over the years, leaving quite a bit of backlog in the art department’s supply shed. I had a lot of fun heating, bending, and welding the steel rebar into numerous shapes.
