Financial aid grants so many students otherwise unattainable access to college. Many of us, myself included, have financial aid resources to thank for our college degrees. But behind the money is an equally powerful driving force – financial aid staff. This army of diligent workers comes into work each day (and stays late and works weekends during peak season) and makes students’ college dreams possible.
It isn’t easy. Compliance is complex, students can be demanding one minute and absent the next, and the demand for precision, for perfection really, is high.
That’s why CampusLogic does what we do. We create software that simplifies the financial aid process for everyone involved. We write blogs that educate students and offer actionable resources for financial aid professionals. We create free verification worksheets (2014-15 and 2015-16). We care, because you care.
Remember Your Value
This holiday season, please take a moment to think of the gift you have given countless students through your service in the financial aid department. One of my favorite quotes comes to mind from author Mahtab Narsimhan, “A good education is the greatest gift you can give yourself or anyone else.”[Tweet “”A good education is the greatest gift you can give yourself or anyone else.” -Mahtab Narsimhan”]
