Perhaps one of the biggest issues many to-be high school graduates must face is whether or not they want to go to college. Going to college might seem like a sound financial investment, considering most people who graduate from college go on to earn substantially more income over the course of their lives than if they had chosen not to do so, but many students who apply to college simply cannot afford to attend. This past weekend, nearly 4,000 students and parents showed up at a financial aid event at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California. To effectively regulate public guidance, booths and different tables were set up where students could fill out application forms to apply for financial aid.
"Who wants to win the million-dollar lottery? People who finish college earn $1 million more in their careers than those with high school diplomas," Ines Ruiz-Huston, the Latino Outreach Coordinator of the program, told the Record Net.
Those who attended the event were led around the University's basketball arena and were guided to their seats. The queuing system worked effectively in preventing congestion.
