The fact that Armory House offered a JBT discount proved very helpful in lowering my college expenses. With the support of this scholarship credit for housing, I was able to direct my funds to other expenses such as school supplies and books. Throughout my time at Armory House Properties, they not only provided financial support, but the opportunity to relax and have fun.
