CTN HOSTS THIRD STUDENT CHARLA ZOOM SESSION
CTN hosted the third of our new Monthly Student Charla zoom sessions on March 25 at 1pm. The charla was titled “Financial Aid 101: Cutting Through Misinformation and Misperception." Keynote speaker, Demetris Curry/CEO of College Cash, began by discussing national student loan debt numbers and the ways in which this debt has affected students’ lives. He then explained how his company works. College Cash is software designed to reduce student loan debt. The company's software helps the users to track their money and disburse it the way they like, thereby helping students to avoid the debt trap, and more. He then answered participant’s questions.
Next, Stacy Ybarra, CTN Director of Student Engagement, offered a session on financial aid which included filling out the FAFSA application. She also spoke about how scholarships work and how to find them. The session ended with a Save the Date announcement for our annual Transfer Motivational Conference and door prizes.
