5 Ways to Make College More Affordable

5 Ways to Make College More Affordable

April 25, 2017

Bob Allen, president of Green Mountain College (VT), writes: For most students and their families, the ability to graduate without crushing debt – and ideally, with a head start on the career of their dreams — plays a huge role in the decision of which college to attend. But don’t panic! Because of financial aid, most students don’t pay the full sticker price. There are many colleges with innovative financial aid solutions, so you can have it all — the school you have dreamed of at a net price you can afford.

The Value of a College Degree

The Value of a College Degree

April 21, 2017

Chris Wood, president of Davis & Elkins College (WV), writes: The national tone of public criticism of higher education has sharpened recently. Many in both the public and private sectors are questioning the cost of higher education, and others are questioning its value. We are being exposed through all forms of media to predominantly negative stories about higher education. As one whose life was transformed by my collegiate experience, and now as a college president, I am a bold and proud apologist for higher education, its value and its necessity to the future of our country and the global economy.

April 18, 2017

Kathleen McCartney, president of Smith College (MA), writes: At Smith College, where I am president, a longstanding, collegewide commitment to student access and success has narrowed the gap in graduation rates for first-generation, Pell Grant-eligible, and other students.
