Imagine if you were a college student today. You're working hard to achieve in the classroom, but struggling financially and burdened by heavy student loans. You're faced with a lot of tough decisions...
Do I eat nutritious meals for a week, or purchase my required textbook?
Do I take care of my family now, or stay in school and focus on the future?
Which bill should I pay? Rent or tuition?
Should I get another job to pay for school, or focus on my studies?
These are just a few questions that face too many of our aspiring students. The Student Emergency Assistance Fund at Penn State Harrisburg is here to help.
Sometimes, students run out of options when faced with an emergency. This was never more apparent than on and after April 3, 2016, when a devastating fire occurred at the Village of Pineford apartments in Middletown, a home to many of Penn State Harrisburg’s students. Immediately following the fire, students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members asked how they could help students who lost everything.
