Host College Financial Aid Seminar October 15

WASHINGTON, DC - U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL-3rd) and St. Xavier University in Chicago will host a College Financial Aid Seminar at 10 a.m., Saturday, October 15 at Reavis High School, 6034 W. 77th St., Burbank.

"As a former college instructor, I know how daunting a task it is for many students and their families to pay for college," Congressman Lipinski said. "A college degree is the great 'equalizer' in our society, so I want to do all I can to make higher education both more available and more affordable for American families."

There will be representatives from the Illinois Student Assistance Commission, State Treasurer Judy Baar Topinka's office and other organizations who will present options and answer questions from students and their families about funding a college education.

"I encourage high school students, especially juniors and seniors, to take advantage of this opportunity to hear from the experts on how to fund a college education that can now cost more than $20,000 a year, even at a public university" Congressman Lipinski said.

More information on the Congressman's College Financial Aid Seminar can be obtained by calling (312) 886-0481.
