From the Advisor: Arising from a post-turkey slumber
Hey Hoyas! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and had a bit of time to rest and relax. Now, onto the next big thing: FINALS! Ahhh!! No need to panic. In good news, though, I did see some snowflakes on the way to campus this morning, which makes this Midwesterner do a happy dance! 🙂

Article of the Week
Student Loan Forgiveness: Education Department Clarifies Rules for New Program (new window)
The Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, which has been around for quite some time, recently had some adjustments made to it. TL:DR – more people working in public service (defined as those persons employed by a U.S. federal, state, local, or tribal government or not-for-profit organization) can now qualify for loan repayment. Check out the article for more information. Note: it is a bit technical and refers to specific types of loans and programs, so be sure to read it carefully. This is a great and less-known benefit of working in the public sector!
