1. As a response to the difficult economic times we are facing, Congress has cut federal student aid programs by approximately $30 billion dollars, sacrificing some student?s benefits to pay for others. The Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, also known as the Super Committee, has until Nov. 23 to come up with a plan to reduce the nation’s debt. Federal student aid could very well be on the chopping block and your voice is needed to defend the programs that grant access to postsecondary education.

Your voice can be heard by signing the statement of support that calls on our lawmakers to Save Student Aid. Click on the link below and become one of thousands who have decided to TAKE ACTION. http://action.studentaidalliance.org Cathleen Patella

3. Hello, my name is Kaylin Thonnesen and I am a Sociology major here at Wells. I am conducting surveys for my thesis in order to understand the effect that the size of one’s public high school has on its student’s perceptions of preparedness for college both socially and academically. Participation for the survey should require about 5 minutes of your time and is completely anonymous and voluntary; you may withdraw from the study at any time without consequences. I am also conducting interviews. Interviews will ask similar, more in depth questions, and will be done in private. Your identity will not be revealed in my project. If you are interested in participating, you may use my contact information provided at the end of the survey to get in touch with me and we will set up a time for an interview from there. To complete my survey, please click on the link that follows. Thank you for your time.
