SVEA Valentines Day Card Making Social is tonight in Clemons 200A from 6-7:30 PM. Come stop by for some snacks in exchange for making cards for patients at the Children’s Hospital! Feel feel to bring your own goodies to share!
Part of SVEA's agenda is to support students like ourselves who are graduating college with an unreasonable amount of student loans. NEA's Degrees Not Debt initiative is tackling this issue, with their latest effort being support of the Reducing Educational Debt Act. Senators Baldwin (D-WI), Hirono (D-HI), and Warren (D-MA) recently introduced the Reducing Educational Debt (RED) Act, which will:
Allow students to refinance federal and private student loans at a lower rate
Increase federal funding to states who commit to free community college for all
Increase Pell Grant awards to students most in need
