Cracking the FAFSA

As a student, you know one thing for a fact: You are poor. There could be many things that tipped you off. Most of your dietary intake comes from eating Ramen noodles, Taco Bell, or McDonalds. You have to choose between buying beer or doing laundry (enough Febreze would make anything smell nicer!). Sadly, not only do you not have any Febreze left, but you don’t even have money to buy beer, so you are stuck in your apartment, hungry, sober, and in smelly clothes. Shit.

In order to solve this dilemma, visit this website at 7 pm tomorrow. The Wall Street Journal on Campus and unigo.com have teamed up to bring to us a live webcast titled “Paying for College: What You Need to Know”. Senior director of Penn State’s Office of Student Aid Melissa Kunes will sit on the panel of experts who will answer tough questions like “how do I take advantage of new student government aid programs?”,  “what are 529 plans, Stafford loans, Pell Grants, and PLUS loans?” and “is Schrodinger’s cat in or out of the box?“.

Kunes had this to say about the webcast:

“It’s my hope that this event will clarify the student aid process for incoming college students and their families and dispel some of the misconceptions and fears about the financial aid process”

Kunes added that every student should apply for the 2010-2011 FAFSA regardless of financial situation and the simplification of the form.

If you have questions for the panelists, email them to [email protected]. By the end of this webcast, you should hopefully have learned some methods that will help you save money in college, regardless of class. Maybe you can finally have enough Ramen, beer, and Febreze!
