“I had been interested in college for many years but was scared that I wasn’t prepared to handle it. After I got into the free classes where I learned a huge amount of things, it got me even more interested in college. I completed my two year degree at New River with honors, and my four year through Bluefield State, Cum Laude.” – David T.
