In an effort to better reflect the services offered by the Student Loan Education Office, effective March 30th, we will be re-named the Office of Student Financial Success. We have removed student loan from the name as many of our discussions focus around more than just student loans. Our financial literacy advisers are available to all students, regardless of whether or not they have borrowed loans, and strive to help students become more successful in managing their finances. Please look for exciting new things in the weeks to come.
