The Broke Student Survey
When OSA went to ask 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 students are going through, how hard we have to work to just get by, the sacrifices we have to make. 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 to the legislature 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.

Please take 5 minutes to fill this out and sign up to get involved if you'd like to help us pressure the legislature for more financial aid, so we can all be a little less broke.
