Ten Marian University students will travel to the Indiana State House on Tuesday, April 9, to stress the importance of need-based financial aid.
Along with other students from Indiana’s private, non-profit colleges and universities, Marian University students want to deliver three messages in person at the Indiana State House: sincere thanks for legislators’ ongoing commitment to state need-based financial aid for students; the urgent need for their continued support of this program; and the critical importance of increasing the number of Hoosiers with bachelor’s degrees to Indiana’s economy.
This will be the last of three student lobby days coordinated by Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI), with the following ICI campuses participating: Marian University, DePauw University Butler University, Grace College, Goshen College, Bethel College, University of Notre Dame, St. Mary’s College, Holy Cross College, Calumet College of St. Joseph, Valparaiso University, St. Joseph’s College, St. Mary-of-the-Woods College, and University of Evansville.
Students will gather at the Indiana History Center at 450 W. Ohio Street beginning at 10:30 a.m. Before walking to the Indiana State House at noon to meet with their hometown legislators, the students will be briefed by ICI President Richard Ludwick on current legislative issues involving state-funded need-based student aid.
Marian University students attending, include: Matthew Duncan, Jessica McQuillin, Denzel Cambell, Khushboo Lad, Rebecca Wagner, Ariana Szymkow, Michael Schraeder, Dante Faturo, Zach Carrie, and Courtney Michel.
