The scholarship website was very nice. Very easy to use, I like how it guides you and pretty much answers each and every question for you as well as gives you good interesting suggestions. I recommend using this scholarship website to anyone looking to find financial help online. THANK you.

Atchison is a small town with a family feel. It has a lot of history and the people are truly friendly. You will find great small locally owned shops downtown and if you are in the mood for a little fright take a trolley tour to visit some of the local haunted houses.

The air is so gross from the factories in town and the weather is always so muggy from the humidity. No one ever wants to go hang outside or play in the grass. It is not an outdoorsy atmosphere.
