Thinking about giving college a try?

There's still time to register for Spring 2009.

With the downturn of the economy, there's never been a better time to go back to school and get a degree.

Why go back to school?

There are plenty of reasons why to start or go back to college. Check out this website for forty fun reasons why to attend college.

One of the biggest reasons why you should get a degree is the opportunity to get a better job. Statistically, people who have an associates degree will make more money over their lifetime than someone with just a high school diploma.

So, what keeps people from coming back to college?

For the excuse that college is too expensive need only look here. The cost of tuition for an in-state student for one semester is only $
1,365.50. Compare that to the closest public university, Tennessee State University in downtown Nashville, in-state tuition of $2,566, and the closet private college, Cumberland University in Lebanon, in-state tuition of $7,910; Vol State is the cheapest way to get a college education.

Struggle with math, writing, or reading? Vol State has classes and labs across the campus to help you out.

Feel like you won't fit in? Vol State has students ranging in age from 65 to 17.
