  1. Great post. This is worth for reading.. I would like suggest also to help other readers to this related post. The College Resell Network helps students find the scholarships that they needed to help support their education in college. There are 480+ scholarships found at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Scholarships site's archive. Visit https://collegeresellnetwork.com/scholarship/

  2. Its interesting to hear how students from the BSc Global Health & Humanitarian Relief have thrived and are using their talents to good effect. It still amazes me that such an innovative course was dropped by the FHSC.
