Financial aid night planned 2.11

Written by David Green.

Siena Heights University is offering free financial aid assistance to high school and college students and their families at “Financial Aid Friday” from 2 to 7 p.m. Feb. 27 in Dominican Hall on the Siena Heights campus.

The program is offered to any students regardless of where they plan to attend college. Professional financial aid experts will be on hand to guide students and parents through the process of filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2009-10 academic year.

“By attending Financial Aid Friday and filing a FAFSA that day, students will be considered for the maximum eligibility for state and federal financial aid,” said SHU Director of Financial Aid Chris Howard. “The state of Michigan deadline is March 1, 2009. We hope area students will take advantage of this opportunity.”

Those attending should bring copies of their 2008 Federal 1040 income tax forms (for both student and parent) or W-2 form if taxes haven’t been filed. Computers will be available on site, and Siena Heights University financial aid specialists will help students file their FAFSA online that day.

No registration is necessary, however, it is recommended that parents and students apply for their Personal Identification Number (PIN) before attending. They can do so by visiting the U.S. Department of Education PIN website at www.pin.ed.gov and register. The PIN serves as an electronic signature for the online form. However, those who do not have a PIN can still attend—a paper signature page can be printed out and mailed to the Department of Education.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
