Free Financial Aid Seminar Sunday at UM-Flint

Going to college costs a fortune. If you compare how much college graduates make vs. what high school grads make over a lifetime, the high cost is worth the investment.

Sunday, February 12th, the University of Michigan-Flint will host College Goal Sunday with volunteer assistance in properly filling out the FAFSA forms (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

I grew up at the height of the space age. President Kennedy declared that we were going to the moon. In July of 1968, the lunar lander touched the craters of the moon, and Neil Armstrong stepped onto the surface. Little kids dream about becoming astronauts — and for some lucky grown-ups, those dreams could become a reality.
