money for college

Jun 3, 2010

Going to college is very difficult now days because tuition fees are very high. Apart from that, universities will not allow you to take the entrance exam unless you proper funding in place. The results of this are that many high school graduates scurry to apply for loans, student aid and grants.
Often times they are forced to look for full-time jobs. Although, sending teenagers to college is the responsibility of the parents. It is the responsibility of the teenager to find the money. However, if proper funding is not in place before the first semester starts, it may be necessary to defer entrance until funding is secure.
On the other hand, there are different options in finding money for your future. There are grants and scholarships. As well as student loans, doing part-time jobs and enrolling in the Universities that are subsidized by a government.
Finding funding can be tricky but it is not difficult. Applying for loans for college should be done while the student is still in high school. Guidance counselors have the necessary forms.
You can also search the web for the necessary forms and applications and college application packages. There are series of questionnaire to narrow your search. All these are just click away. You just need to have patience, persistence and hard work.
Having a college education in today’s business world means the difference of being in the boardroom or in the mailroom


Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine is Connecticut-bound ‎

Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine has signed a 10-year lease with Building and Land Technology to establish Cornell University Veterinary Specialists (CUVS), a satellite referral and 24-hour emergency care hospital located at 880 Canal Street in Stamford, CT, that will employ 40 veterinarians and staff.

The hospital is expected to open in early 2011 and will provide veterinary specialty and emergency critical care services to patients referred by their local veterinarians. CUVS will not engage in general practice and will be the largest and most comprehensive University-affiliated veterinary specialty/emergency and critical care, satellite facility established to date.

The decision to open a referral/emergency clinic in the New York metro area was an outcome of the College’s strategic planning process that involved many outside stakeholders, members of the College community, and veterinarians. CUVS will be housed in a 20,000 square-foot building, as part of the $3 billion LEED-certified Harbor Point mixed-use urban redevelopment project, which also includes a new Fairway supermarket, 4,000 new luxury apartments, numerous office buildings, and the worldwide corporate headquarters for Starwood Hotels and Resorts.

“These services will be of tremendous value to the community,” said Carl R. Kuehner, III, Building and Land Technology President and CEO. “Companion animals are members of the family for many people, making the demand for cutting edge veterinary medicine – treatments and procedures that rival those available to humans – greater every day.”

Board-certified specialists will offer high-end treatments and procedures, such as orthopedic and soft-tissue surgery, emergency and critical care, internal medicine, cardiology, and imaging. Additional services will be added over time, in consultation with referring veterinarians. The hospital will have advanced invasive and non-invasive diagnostic, imaging, and therapeutic modalities, as well as clinician and technical specialists with advanced training onsite. In order to provide the most complete care possible, CUVS veterinarians and staff will also be able to leverage the expertise and equipment located at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, NY. Via videoconferencing and onsite housing accommodations, CUVS will allow students the opportunity to see specialty and referral medicine in a practical, higher volume environment typical of metropolitan areas.

CUVS will expand the number of veterinary options available in the region; compete fairly based on the quality of medicine and client services offered; and meet a number of significant needs for the College and the profession. It will expand Cornell’s role in specialty medicine by creating an integrated veterinary medical center that supports clinical research and expands the educational experience for veterinary residents and students seeking their doctor of veterinary medicine degree. The facility will include a tiered auditorium and overnight rooms for rotating students and residents. It will also allow Cornell to effectively deliver continuing education programming to veterinarians in the New York metropolitan area.

“This is an exciting and innovative initiative for Cornell and one that will combine the best elements of private practice and advanced, discovery–based medicine ,” said Michael Kotlikoff, Austin O. Hooey Dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University. “We have multiple goals for CUVS, all of which will benefit our clients and patients, and strengthen the College and the veterinary profession.”
