    • Financial Aid Jeopardy 2013

      This January 14, thirty-two students were lucky enough to play Financial Aid “Jeopardy.”

      Divided into four teams, students competed for the chance to win Java John’s gift cards (and learned lots about Financial Aid in the process).  Categories included Acronyms, Completing the FAFSA, Financial Aid Programs, Loans, Loans, Loans and Potpourri; while the answers ranged from Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant to the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.

      While competing, we snacked on chips & salsa and pinwheel hors d’oeuvres, and three students received door prizes such as a USB powered lamp and an LED board.

      Forty-seven students enjoyed the variety of Pizza Hut, including a pineapple pizza (apparently it was excellent), along with fresh fruits and vegetables.  While the movie A Christmas Story played in the background, we played card or board games (I lost badly at Disney Sorry, again ☹ ).
