We are excited to announce our next event. Next Thursday, April 13 at 3:40pm in Fusselman Hall, Room 120 we are hosting an AFT Student Debt Clinic. The clinic will be led by our local AFT Representative, Jason Wedemeyer, and will address the various Federal Student Loan relief options available to you - including those of you paying Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL) for family members!
