How to Make Prospective Students Fall in Love With Your University

As a Student Admissions Representative at the University of West Florida, my job is to help prospective students find out how to make their splash.

Don’t start guessing numbers or facts, because it’s obvious when you are racking your brain. If someone asks you a question and you don’t know the answer, don’t make it up!

Best Ways To Consolidate Student Loans…

The numerous types of student loans are most commonly organized into two categories, which are federal and private loans.
