MacCormac College, a two-year, private, non-profit college in the Chicago Loop that offers degrees in court reporting, paralegal studies, criminal justice and business administration, is offering two full-ride scholarships valued at $27,000 a piece to qualified applicants who can best demonstrate need and post-graduate plans.
This marks the first time in the college’s 100+-year history that full scholarships have been available. Applications are due January 15, 2017, and available at http://www.maccormac.edu/maccormac-college-season-giving.
The initiative is the culmination of the college’s two-month Season of Giving, which has included multiple philanthropic activities in the community.

I love it when guys in a “boy band” can hop on stage and show the world that yes, they can play an instrument. This was great!!

Here are seven ways to cut down on holiday gift-giving, while saving you time, money and stress:
Set a realistic budget, and then figure out how to stay within it. Many people buy gifts without calculating their total expenditures and are surprised when the bills arrive.
Talk to your significant other about alternatives. Maybe the money spent on gifts toward trips they take together. Other couples may prefer a night at the movies or a romantic weekend at home.
Suggest to relatives and friends that you end or limit gift exchanges. Some families may draw names for gift exchange, do a Secret Santa drawing, set dollar limits or end gift-giving entirely. Others, may do something together instead of exchanging gifts.
Coordinate gift-giving for kids with other friends and relatives. If your child wants something expensive, all the relatives might go in and buy that one gift, rather than buying individual gifts.
Opt out of office gift exchanges. Bake cookies for co-workers or write each a note about what you appreciate.
Ask your relatives if they would prefer alternatives to gifts. Many older people don’t want more things. Grandma may have all the sweaters she needs, but she may really want you to come over with dinner one evening or clean her gutters.
Bring edible gifts to parties. Wine, chocolate, cookies or other food items don’t cost much and won’t end up on a shelf collecting dust.
