Have you taken the Broke Student Survey?

We asked the legislature for more financial aid, they told us straight to our faces: "Why can't you just get a second job?" Hold my beer. People who make decisions about financial AID have no idea what we are going through, how hard we have to work or the sacrifices we make just to get by. So we're going to show them. The Broke Student Survey is a way for us to put the reality of being a student in Ohio in front of people in power and show them just how much it takes to get by. If we collect enough responses, we can go back and say, "See? This is why we need more financial aid from the state!" ESPECIALLY if you are no longer a student, please fill this out so we can show them how big of a problem we're up against.
