College Day: There is Always a Way to Pay

How will you pay for college? We hope to inspire and share with you resources and knowledge on how to save and prepare for college.

On Friday, October 11, 2013, we will be joining schools in Santa Clara County for the 3rd Annual College Day – a county-wide college-going effort – where students in elementary, middle, and high schools will participate in interactive activities to inspire and support their aspirations for a college education. This year’s theme is “College: There is Always a Way to Pay,” and activities will center on financial literacy and financial aid information.
