Nearly 100 meals being given to Bradford Commons and Kenduskeag Terrace residents

BANGOR — At Thanksgiving, most of us are thinking about eating large amounts of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie. It’s a holiday where Americans celebrate the bounties of the season.

Here at Husson, our campus culture emphasizes the importance of character and humility.

RPS partners with University of Richmond for “No Loan” program | Richmond Local News

UR also offers free tuition and room and board to residents of Virginia whose annual parental income is $60,000 or less through its “Richmond’s Promise to Virginia” program. The program ensures that those students will graduate without student loans.
