Hannah Day graduated first in her class with a perfect 4.0 grade point average. She intends to study architectural engineering.
What Hannah says, “”I realize that I could take out a loan, but I hope to be able to graduate with little or no debt so I can put all my future income towards graduate school rather than paying off old school debt. The less money I have to pay back, the sooner I will be able to afford graduate school and pursue my dream career.”
