Happy National Financial Aid Day! We at iontuition wanted to thank the hardworking financial aid professionals with a bit of verse. Enjoy!
Ode to Financial Aid Officers
Hundreds of young students assigned to your care
Higher ed dreams lofty, but wallets are bare
The search for a college may seem like a chore
Especially constrained by their ACT score
They expect to join up with Phi Beta Kappa
But it won’t happen till they fill out their FAFSA
Teens may not realize it’s important or nifty
Paying off school loans before they are fifty
To tally tuition down to the last decimal
They rely upon you, Financial Aid Professional
Your days may run short, there’s so much to do
Students lined up, hopes for dreams coming true
But you must inform them, that is your mission
A duty made lighter by iontuition
Coming into your office unaware of FinAid
but upon leaving, their futures are swayed
So remember in times when tired, stressed out
That YOU ARE APPRECIATED, without a doubt!
