UMass System Increases Financial Aid

Hey all you money-struggling college students (much like myself!) How’s everybody’s week been? The days seem to fly by! I can’t believe it’s already mid-February!! Well, as the semester goes on and I get busier and busier, I’m noticing a decrease in the width of my wallet. I’m sure many of you have had similar experiences.
Well, for those of us drowning in student debt…there IS hope!! 

The UMass system has increased it’s Financial Aid contribution by 267%!! “The University of Massachusetts is allocating $130.5 million for student financial aid this year, the university announced today.” -Globe Corespondent

In the past, UMass has allocated around $30 million to assist students with financial aid. The UMass system knows how important a higher education is, which is why they are increasing the amount of financial aid. 

Well, I for one am excited about this! Who’s with me??

I hope you all have a great weekend!!!
