Griffin St. Onge (Translation Studies minor and Comp Lit office assistant) participated in the creation of a Campus Affordability Guide at the University of Michigan.
She was interviewed about this student initiative in the Michigan Daily: “We really need any guide on affordability to start with and focus on resources that actually help people afford to be here,” St. Onge said. “Understanding how your financial aid package works, how you can use it to your benefit, what kind of scholarships and employment opportunities are available to you, which jobs work well with student schedules and how you can compete in this really intense atmosphere that expects you to complete all of these incredibly expensive internships and study abroad programs.”
The news was picked up by the Ann Arbor News, the Detroit Free Press, and then it went national in The Chronicle for Higher Education and Inside Higher Ed. Griffin was also interviewed on Michigan Radio. We're incredibly proud of Griffin's initiative and her eloquence in speaking about her experience at the University of Michigan!
