I am saving roughly 1/3 of the tuition cost from my prior university. After housing costs and flights, I am spending 1/5 of what I was spending last year.

Memorial Bridge – The original Memorial Bridge opened in 1923, and is owned 50-50 by the NHDOT and MaineDOT. The new bridge was the first of its kind – a gussetless steel-truss bridge whose design was based on the original designs by JAL Waddell. #nowyouknow #portsmouth #learnlocal #choosecommunity
