Fisher More College
- short for the College of Sts. John Fisher and Thomas More - is a small, Catholic, liberal arts college in its third year of operation. The college's goal is to provide the best education and atmosphere possible at an affordable price for young adults from all family situations, without incurring the debt so many plunge into simply to attend college. This is made possible by charging a tuition of only $5,000 per semester, with scholarships available to those who still cannot afford the full amount without going into debt. The college, as a whole, believes in the importance of obtaining a thorough education in order to lay a good foundation that will succeed in the modern world, where both education and foundation are crucial. This is why the college is willing to work with each students' individual financial needs, so that all may reach the education they deserve.
However, our college, being young, relies greatly at this stage upon the generosity of others. This is why we, the students of Fisher More, are reaching out for help. Up until the last few days, we believed we had lined up the funds necessary to continue our mission and carry our school through the next semester and beyond. Unexpectedly and disastrously these did not pull through, and we are left facing the
closure of our college, just days before we expected to be starting our
next semester! We have only a few days before our Alma Mater closes its doors and
leaves many students without a college. If our goal is reached, the
college will be able continue with normal operations and we with our
education. But if not, if Fisher More closes its doors, many of its
students will not be able to afford such an education elsewhere, and not
only currently attending students, but also the many students
who were previously planning to attend.
We students will not let our Alma
Mater go down without a fight! Please help us save our school, for our
sakes, as well as those to come! Every dollar counts. Every donation, no
matter how small, is one step in the right direction. Please help us,
and keep us in your prayers, as you are in ours. God bless you! Viva Cristo Rey!
