In 2007 I said, “It was a big help and definitely made it affordable to attend college out of state. Had it not been for the tuition break I likely would have selected a different major and attended a less expensive college in my home state, which would have drastically changed my life.” I stand by those words today — 12 years after graduating with a bachelor’s in Creative Writing. I remain grateful that I had the opportunity to start down a path, thanks to the RSP Tuition Break, that would lead me toward a career in journalism.
