"I received the Grabbe-Utley Scholarship from VU while I was in high school. It is a scholarship that let me go to VU for two years for free and then to another college of my choice for two years. I liked VU so much that I decided to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Nursing from there. VU was the right choice for me."
