“I went to the student loan seminar and I would HIGHLY recommend it for our families. I had originally thought it was going to be a sales pitch for a loan through Prospera and it was anything BUT that. As a mom of a freshman, I think it was even good to attend now rather than waiting until my kids are upperclassmen. It makes you want to start saving as soon as possible instead of having to take out loans later on. They really help you understand the loan process and how it works.”
