It is a good idea to have a separate account that you use specifically for your scholarship search. Be mindful of the name that you give your site. It should be professional sounding and not something cutesy. Think for a moment the impression projected with something like "teeneyweneypinkbikini" or "madmanmike" or "sweetiepie".

Remember, first impressions do count. When applying for scholarships, you want to project a good image.

Brenda,
There are several places on campus with computers for student use-- the Career/Transfer Center, the Hilb Center, and the Library.

Technology is here to stay and the young students use it on a daily basis.

I personally have an e-mail I use for friendly basis and just recently created an account that I thought was acceptable to use on a professional basis. Would it be fine for me to use that one or do you suggest I have one set aside for scholarships only?
