Make College Affordable!


Dear next President, I am a student that currently attends The Piney Woods School and as a senior one of my biggest concern's is college. One thing that I always hear from my peers is that they prefer not to apply to a university they rather settle for a community college not because they feel that they wouldn't be accepted but the fact that they don't want to be in dept with school loans. Are focus should be making universities more affordable. For example there is a student and maybe they don't make straight A's or they didn't get an outstanding score on the ACT. but at the same time this student is an intelligent person and will work hard. I don't believe money should stop ones's dreams of going somewhere if that person has the potential to do great things.
