    This “Ann Garber” person, whom I am not affiliated with in any way, knows what she’s talking about.

    Definitely an issue. Budgeting is important, but so is making sure that need-based financial aid actually covers the needs of the students.

    Occidental administrators and student affairs personnel need to read this and be aware of the problem they are not seeing or experiencing. Giving these young adults the wrong information does not help them in any way. I thought the administration was there to teach not discourage higher education.

    I find this very interesting & I think that college students should have access to more financial aid instead of having to worry about paying loans in the future.

    Well written article, hope someone pays attention It seems to me colleges have lost sight of what low income means, even high school provides free meals for low income students, acknowledging that students need proper nutrition in order to realize their full academic potential. Students have enough stress worrying about loans and grades. This whole not being able to stay on campus during the holiday break just adds insult to injury.

    How about loads be just $0.25?
