I love how Niche comes to me and reminds me to apply every day. In the past, applying to scholarship have never been easy to apply like Niche. I am horrible with the internet and I just got my laptop a few months ago. Honestly, I used to live in a homeless shelter back in 2015. I did worry of how to apply online since I had no connections, but Niche had gave me hope. It is the first website that was recommend to me by a teacher. She recommend it to me because she knew my situation at the time. She knew I would feel more at ease and it did.

Since I do not have a car, it is essential that I live on campus. This means that I have to work on campus, but it is more convenient to go to my classes everyday. If you are into the Greek Life, I believe that this campus has active Greek Organizations. I enjoy the different activities that are provided for campus students. People that I have encountered are very nice and teachers are supportive. It is not difficult to like this campus even when I am away from home. I would just like it if they build more housing buildings and improve the cafeteria food.
