Brrrrrr...it's cold outside!

While this cold weather may be keeping you from enjoying the outdoors, here are some ideas for inside activities:
  • Finish your college application!  Most colleges let you complete the application online, as does TC.  If you have already completed your application, be sure your high school guidance office knows where to send your transcripts and test scores.
  • Look for scholarships/grants!  But how do I do this, you may ask.   First, you'll want to talk to your high school guidance office and see what scholarships/grants they have information on, and see if you can apply for them.  Then you'll want to create an account at www.fastweb.com and do a search for scholarship/grant money there.  You may also want to call around (or venture out if you can) to your local Chamber of Commerce, bank, etc.  It never hurts to look!
  • Get ready to complete  your FAFSA!  I say "get ready" because it is not yet time to complete this application.  You can begin as soon as January 1.  While you and your parents wait for January 1, you can go ahead and complete your PINs.  You will need a PIN and your parent will need a PIN to electronically sign the FAFSA.  You can do this here: www.fafsa.ed.gov/  Please remember that Tusculum College's deadline for the FAFSA is February 15!
That should help with your cabin fever while waiting for the snow to melt.  With that thought, I leave you with this picture of Tusculum College's campus, blanketed with snow.

Merry Christmas!

  1. The essay component of college and university admissions is often the most difficult for high school students to prepare. Applicants must demonstrate knowledge of themselves as much as of the craft of writing, and will likely need help.Visit this site:
