Free education in the USA?


The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.

– Aristotle

Do not be surprised free education still exists in the United States of America

The USA is known as a pure capitalist country, but few know about free tuition universities for international students

The importance of education is too numerous to discuss but let the quote from Aristotle be a reminder of the need for education; every farmer needs an edible fruit. This post aims to bring to the knowledge of those who may not know that despite the massive cost of graduate and undergraduate education in the USA, there are a few colleges and universities that offer 100& tuition fee policy: free education. For instance, some universities give reasons why there are no tuition and others do not.

Below are some of those that we can law our hands-on for now

Berea College

Barea College is a predominantly black liberal arts college founded in in 1855, it was among the first interracial and coeducational colleges in the USA, and is in Berea Kentucky, USA.

Berea college’s students are almost from the state of Kentucky, the Appalachian region; however, there are many students from other countries. It offers 100% scholarship to its students, including international students. International students pay only 50 (US)  entrance fee and upon securing admission will make a deposit of $2,200 (US)  to secure and confirm their enrolment; this deposit will be paid back to the students to be used for their personal expenses. Berea College offers students jobs and assists students in securing student jobs within the Berea area as well.

Vanderbilt University

It is a private research university founded in 1873 named after Cornelius Vanderbilt – a wealthy businessman – who financed the construction of the university. It is located in Nashville, Tennessee. It offers a substantial amount of funds for scholarships to international students; even has a Nigerian scholar as an academic staff.




Olumba, E. E. and Ekeanyanwu, N. T. (2016) Boko Haram and Transnational Terrorism in Africa: Implications for Political Communication and Media Development. In: D. Wilson, (ed.), Mass Media and the Electoral Process in Nigeria. Uyo: African Council for Communication Education, pp.141-164.
The menace of cross-border terrorism in Africa and the unabated rise of Boko Haram as a deadly and major terror group in Nigeria have raised concerns globally. Cross-border terrorism, which is regarded in this paper as transnational terrorism, has also challenged political and developmental experts because of its unprecedented impact on all sectors of the affected nations, which carry the added burden of managing their undeveloped economic status with the problems associated with terrorism. The recent wave of terrorism in Africa is phenomenal in its origin and nature because it encompasses political, ethnic and historical undertones with greater emphasis on the elevation of Islamic religion above other tenets of modern life. This phenomenon poses several questions which many scholars are trying to answer. This chapter also examined common factors in terms of vision and mission which drive Boko Haram and some other terrorist groups in the African continent. The high point of this chapter is a discourse on the implications of cross-border terrorism by Boko Haram on political communication and media development in Nigeria and Africa at large.



FacebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinThis is to introduce Onyx, a PH based rapper who grew up in Enugu. During a recent interview with PHCITYONLINE.COM, he informed us that he is a native of Ugbawka in Nkanu LGA in Enugu State, and attended St. Charles Iwanga International Secondary School in Okpoko, Onitsha, where his taste for an Igbo infused rap music was cultivated in him; which was tweaked in Enugu. According to Onyx, his music mentors include, but not limited to Immortal, Technique, Jcole, Erriga, Phyno etc.

His main motive remains to tell his own story and that of his socio-political environment; why his most popular song –Akpuolagi- has a little stint of politics in it; Onyx maintains that ‘Music is just an instrument for me’. This young and talented man is currently the sensation within the South East and South-South of Nigeria. He is using his talent and creative capabilities to pass on crucial message regarding the current events in that part of the world which in particular pertains to Imo State. 2018 started well for Onyx, the popular artist was not able to disclose any record label which he is associated with at the moment. We wish him all the best in his career.

Post Card from London: London Rats

FacebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinBros, hopefully all is OK with you over there in Nigeria. It has been years since you last got a postcard from me. I have been engrossed in activities beyond my control but, at least, I am able to catch a breath of fresh air for now. Within the coming months you will get more postcards detailing some of my culture shocks and escapades in London. Our departure from MM International airport Lagos was a very exciting one even though the Immigration and Customs officers made it look as though my visa was fake, or was it a pretext to ask for a bribe from me?
uk-riots-8Upon arrival at Heathrow airport, the friend who came to pick me up did not turn up with a car; though he always took pictures with shiny and beautiful cars which made him appear as though he owned a collection of luxury cars. We were friends and had also grown up together in our village somewhere in Ika South LGA of Delta state. We left the airport on a train to somewhere called Peckham, before finally taking a bus to his flat. The flat is a 6 bedroom apartment shared by 6 adults nonetheless with 3 toilets and showers. It was a surprise that they have apartments similar to face-me-I-face-you in London. He enlivened my thoughts and issues with some ‘shacks’ which he had reserved; the name of the shack is Tennent’s lager. I later heard a joke that Tennent’s drinkers never own homes; story for another day. Nonetheless, we drank till late in the night. He removed a mattress from under his bed which he used to cover the remaining little space in the room and went to bed. I crept onto the 8 spring bed, which is a mattress left on top of wooden frames.

After a while, I started dreaming. My thoughts were, “why can’t Nigeria and its useless dreams stop bothering?” I was suddenly jolted up by a small bite to my leg. It was not in a dream bro, lo and behold, before your man is a London rat. As big as a rabbit, it was a shameful surprise! ‘A whole London!’ I wondered if I should dive for its head, how best not to wake my host if I had to kill the rat and I wondered if RSPCA people – RSPCA is an animal rights organization as we have human rights organization like Amnesty International- will sue if the rat got killed. While those thoughts ran through my head, the rat escaped. As I searched for it and wondered how on earth it escaped, I traced its route. To my greatest surprise, the house is partitioned with wood. London houses are built with wood, even the so-called “storey buildings”. I went back to bed. In my next postcard you will hear about what happened in the morning. My first London morning.

Kind Regards,
