Being here for students means that I’m able to provide the resources that students need at the time. It’s not just financial. Some students might have mental health problems. They might have learning disabilities that need to be addressed. The financial aid office is the place where they come to address multiple issues. Sometimes financial need issues really just cover an underlying issue that students need help with. We need to be there for them.
