Here's your chance to be a part of something special by joining the Student Body Scholarship Association team for the 2014, ASICS LA MARATHON.
Over the past three decades, the average tuition for a four year public college has risen more than 250 percent, while typical family income has gone up only 16 percent.
In 1983, the average in-state tuition at a four-year public university was about $6,700. For the 2010-2011 semesters those costs rose to $15,605. Factor in the costs of room, board and other expenses and that total can easily exceed $20,000.
Furthermore, over the past five years states have drastically cut college funding which directly impacts over 75 percent of America's undergraduate students who attend public colleges and universities that rely heavily on these state funds.
We are living in a time where higher education has never been more important but too many qualified students are forced to drop out or not attend college at all simply because they can't afford it.
Join us as we strive to raise scholarship money to help low and moderate income students who struggle or simply can't afford to pay for their college education.
