For students enrolling in college, financial aid can come in three forms: Federal, Institutional, and Private (or third-party). For those seeking aid options in addition to federal and institutional awards, researching private scholarships may prove highly rewarding and beneficial.
Are you still working on your reading list for this year?
Sometimes, trying to decide what to read is half the battle. If you are not much of a reader, you may be hesitant to pick up a title without a solid recommendation. On the other hand, if you are an avid reader, you may have such a long list of want-to-reads that you can’t make up your mind what to start next! So many books; so little time.
In an attempt to eliminate some of the guesswork for you, we assembled a short list of titles to share below. This list includes a variety of genres ranging from classic novels to Christian living, and most of them are fairly easy reads as well.
We asked around and got input from our English department, our Administration, and even the students! You may have already read many of these – or maybe not. Either way, we hope you find something that sparks your interest.
Most of these titles can be found in digital and audio formats as well. This makes it even more convenient for you! Especially the audio format – you can listen while you walk to class, work out, or clean your dorm room! (Yes, that was a hint in case you were wondering.)
