Jennifer Wick attended the 2011 PASFAA Annual Conference in Pittsburgh

Jennifer staffed the S&K booth at the most recent PASFAA conference.

Did you attend? The 2011 Pennsylvania Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators (PASFAA) Conference was held from October 23 through October 26 in Pittsburgh at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel. 

This year's Conference provided opportunities to learn from experts on important topics such as:

  • Trends in College Affordability
  • Financial Literacy Programs on Campus
  • Private Loan Underwriting
  • Cohort Default Rates
  • Presenting and Marketing Financial Aid Related Events on Your Campus
  • Net Price Calculator
  • State Grant and Special Programs
  • and much, much more!

Jennifer staffed a booth in the Exhibit Area, answering questions and sharing our online FAST demo so that attendees could see how they might use this software to run their own reports and plan their financial aid awarding strategies accordingly. If you missed the conference, or missed connecting with Jennifer, you can still view the online FAST demo here.
