The moment I stepped foot onto Widener's campus, I recognized that it was the only place I wanted to be next year. The people, programs, and simply the atmosphere of the campus grew close to my heart in a very short period of time. They offer a phenomenal Criminal Justice program, that will assist me in pursing my dream of becoming a detective. My goal is to live on campus so I am able to take full advantage of every thing the school has to offer me. Through this, I will have a much greater opportunity to meet new people, broaden my horizons, and simply get the full college experience! Not owning a car makes it impossible for me to commute to Widener which means being a resident student is my only option. My acceptance email can be viewed on my student page, along with other updates of my time in high school. I will continue to update my page during the time I am a Widener student so you are able to keep track of how I am doing academically. The total tuition and room cost totals approximately 51,0000 dollars. I was offered a presidential scholarship of 21,000 dollars annually to Widener which still leaves me with an additional $30,0000. On top of this, I have also applied to several other miscellaneous scholarships. I have been working at Coldstone Creamery since I was a junior to attempt to begin saving for textbook fees and other fees. I also have a second job during the summer that will assist me some. I am working extraordinarily diligently to accumulate enough money so I will not have any debt when I leave college. This fund is to help pay for my down payment to secure a dorm for me in 2014. This provides me with the opportunity to pick which room I want to spend my four years in...a very important decision! I sincerely appreciate any donation from the bottom of my heart! For those who cannot donate, I would also appreciate if you could assist me in spreading the word!
