"I have learned to really get to know the student financial services team, ask questions, and talk to other people who have received financial aid. I have also gotten involved with many clubs, two on-campus jobs, and two academic honor societies. The more you become involved, the more sources and opportunities you will have to receive aid … and even if it’s only a few hundred dollars, everything adds up in the end."
