How to Create a Portfolio
Portfolios represent you – who you are, what you have done, what you hope to do. A good portfolio tells reviewers not just about your accomplishments, but about the way you think about your life and goals.
Financial Aid and Budgeting
In all the excitement of beginning a university career, first-year university students often lose sight of one of their biggest challenges: how to survive financially. Poor planning can have consequences that will last long after first year comes to an end.
The best way to meet this challenge is to prepare a budget – and then stick to it!
