The FAFSA awareness kick off on Feb. 9 at Bakersfield College was excellent and a lot of students attended, according to Valerie Mackey, Financial Aid assistant.
Students were given fliers with dates and times of upcoming financial aid workshops and staff members were there to answer general financial aid questions.
Games were played. To test a student’s knowledge on Financial Aid, questions were asked and if answered correctly, prizes, fun giveaways and free lunches were given.
Mackey said, “overall the kickoff was successful,” and the department expects attendance at the upcoming FAFSA workshops to increase.
FAFSA is the federal application for student aid.
