Finaid Fairs Raise Awareness
by Charisse Dengler
 
Because most prospective college students aren’t fully aware of the extensive financial aid benefits that are at their fingertips, colleges and universities have taken to staging events in their communities to help get the word out. From high school seniors to students at community colleges and universities, financial aid offices are reaching out locally to educate the public on different options for financing higher education.

Columbia College, for example, is holding a Financial Aid Awareness Faire in which financial aid staff will speak with students about the different programs that are available to them. Free barbecue lunches and games will also be included.

Geared toward high school students and their parents, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi is set to host a financial aid event at the Padre Staples Mall. Financial aid staffers will be on hand to deliver valuable information on the financial aid process.

Students who stop by the event will be able to receive one-on-one counseling in regard to particular aid programs that would most benefit their situations and will also have a chance to chat with representatives from different departments within the university.

The overall goal of colleges and universities in educating students on their financial aid options is to not only help them in their pursuit of higher education, but also to help them later in life.

In fact, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke recently made the remark that financial education, which leads to a greater understanding of personal finances, ultimately results in a better economy.

How EdFed Helped others!
EdFed helped me out a lot! My student loan balance was not as high as most of my friends, so I didn't even know if consolidating would be worth my time. The loan counselors at EdFed really explained the benefits of consolidating and took the time to do a comparison of my total loan costs with and without consolidating. Even though my loan balance was not large, my monthly payments were reduced by almost 50% through my EdFed loan consolidation! This provided a lot of relief. Now, I know I can make my student loan payments, and I still have plenty of money to do the things I want to. Thank you, EdFed, for walking me through this process.

Any normal person today in the whole of United States has to take an education loan at one point of time to pay for their education fees.
