Loan companies allowed to counsel students

Rachel Jones, a senior at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, was sitting through a student-loan workshop that university officials had told her was mandatory when a creepy feeling kicked in. The woman in the front of the classroom asked students to fill out forms with personal information — including names, addresses and phone numbers of relatives, an employer and a friend. Jones recalled that she also talked about “other loan companies” that would saddle students with unfavorable rates if they decided to consolidate loans on graduation. Unable to keep quiet, Jones raised her hand: “I just said, excuse me, who are you and what is your affiliation?” The woman identified herself as an employee of All Student Loan, a California-based lender. Jones, a 22-year-old who has $17,000 in student loans, had unwittingly stumbled upon another undisclosed relationship between universities and loan companies. Recent investigations have largely focused on incentives that lenders give universities to get coveted placement on the preferred lending lists students use to take out loans when they enter college. But colleges also give lenders crucial access to students when they are graduating, using lenders to conduct exit counseling required under federal law for students who have taken out federally guaranteed student loans. In some cases, loan company representatives come on campus and run sessions for seniors on loan repayment. In others, colleges direct students to loan company Web sites, including those of Wells Fargo, Citibank and Sallie Mae. And in many cases, the loan companies are pushing a product: their consolidation loans. Anne Prisco, vice president for enrollment management at Loyola, defended the practice, saying the lenders allowed on campus were carefully selected. “Every year when we have exit interviews, we ask if they want to assist,” Prisco said. “They are just there to provide additional information.” Others say the access to students is improper. Heather McDonnell, the director of financial aid for Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, N.Y., said she thought using loan companies for exit counseling was “absolutely” inappropriate. “Behind every lender is a consolidation loan,” McDonnell said. “I don’t allow anybody to come on my campus to come and do that. I just don’t think it’s a good idea. I think that information should be coming directly from the financial aid office.” Many students have various kinds of loans, and consolidation allows them to combine the loans to pay a single interest rate in one monthly payment. Karen Gross, the president of Southern Vermont College and a professor of law at New York Law School, said that depending on a student’s prospective job, income and health, consolidating loans was often unwise. For example, she said, students who take certain public-sector jobs may sign away available benefits if they consolidate federal student loans. “There is no shortage of erroneous information that a student could receive in a group counseling session,” Gross said. “Student loan consolidation makes sense for many students, but for many students it is absolutely not the right choice.” She added that “the reason this is bothersome is that students are required to engage in exit interviews, and so lenders have a captive audience.” The reason exit interviews are mandatory is that the federal government wants to crack down on default rates. According to the Education Department, exit counseling is intended to explain borrowers’ rights and responsibilities, loan repayment and the consequences of default.last_img read more

Federal Agriculture Minister talks trade in Dawson Creek

first_img“Pork can cycle a lot faster and build up their capacity a lot faster, but beef is going to take a while to build those herds and we’ll have that during that transition period.” Another trade opportunity discussed with the producers was making better use of the ports at Prince Rupert, with the federal and Alberta governments looking at the logistics. Ritz argues anything produced here that’s in demand by countries in the Pacific Rim could be moved that way. “A lot more product could be moved, especially as we gain access into the Pacific Rim in a more wholesome way than we have now,” he says. “With China alone, you’ve got $1.3 billion people looking for food everyday on the table, and that’s another thing that Canada has access to in a lot better way than before.” “There’s huge potential when you’re talking a brand new market of roughly 500 million consumers,” remarked Minister Ritz after the round table discussion. “We’ve got a little bit of access into that market, but nothing you’d say is causing our producers to take notice of it or processors to expand their capacity in order to address it.” The CETA deal was signed last month, and is expected to be ratified within roughly two years. That’s when nearly all agricultural tariff lines will be removed, allowing for easier trade between the two economies. The immediate benefits to the Peace Region remain to be seen, but Ritz argues one of the sectors most likely to benefit is the beef producers. – Advertisement -“This is brand new dollars and numbers that we’re talking about for the livestock sector, which is, of course, a big chunk of the piece,” he explains. “They’ve identified this as a $600 million year gain, so that’s tremendous opportunity to start to expand our cow herd. We haven’t had a lot of good news over the last 10 years, but this certainly has the livestock producers excited.” In the meantime, Ritz suggests local farmers can build up their livestock herds, in preparation for the free-trade deal to come into play. Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgFootballA dominant performance in the second half gave Aodh Ruadh the points in this division 3 clash at a wintery Páirc Aoidh Ruaidh. It was a muscular display by Aodh Ruadh with a physically imposing and fit Ballyshannon team dictating the tempo. Eamonn McGrath and Conor Patton both impressed in defence while Niall Harley and Johnny Gethins formed an excellent midfield partnership. The front six put in a great shift, giving a great exhibition of high pressing close to the opposition posts with David Dolan also providing a great outlet for long ball. We have a full match report and pictures from the game up on Aodh Ruadh last game of the league is away to Letterkenny Gaels on Sunday 8th November at 3pm. Aodh Ruadh under 21s booked their spot in the county A semi-final with a 1-19 to 1-11 win over a feisty Dungloe outfit in Tir Chonaill Park, Donegal town on Bank Holiday Monday. It was a ropey first half from Aodh Ruadh, but an impressive display from the Ballyshannon lads when they found their rhythm. There was a powerful performance from half back with Callum O’Halloran, Eamonn McGrath and Pauric Patton exceptional in the second half, Jason Granaghan also shone in a second half defensive effort that saw Dungloe only register 1-1. Niall Harley and Nathan Boyle blossomed at midfield as the game progressed. In the attack Oisín Roper made a huge contribution to winning the game as did the reliable shooting of David McGurrin, Shane McGrath, Jamie McDonald and Philip Patton. Ryan McKenna also made a lively impression on his introduction. Aodh Ruadh will now face Saint Eunan’s in the county semi-final after the Letterkenny men defeated Termon 1-16 to 1-5 in their quarter-final. We have a full match report and pictures from the game up on Ruadh under 13s exited the league at the semi-final stages, losing out to Ardara on a scoreline of 4-12 to 0-10 under lights at Páirc an Phiarsaigh on Friday night. The Ernesiders were down Senan Rooney and had to battle the conditions too, with the game played in torrential rain. Ballyshannon were well in it at half-time, but Ardara were strong in the second half. Best for Aodh Ruadh was Eugene Doherty who played his heart out in the middle of the field. In defence Cian Barden delivered a committed 60 minutes, while up front Harry Howarth gave it everything he had in attack.The first night of the under 10 Ballyshannon Shoe Company indoor winter league saw some excellent football with nearly 30 player taking part and keenly contested games, with Val Murray in charge of proceedings on the pitch. The Tigers and Panthers are deadlocked at the top of the league with the Pumas, Jaguars and Lions hot on their tails. It’s still very much all to play for this Friday on the final night of the under 10 league. We are playing from 6pm to 8pm with the second set of round robins. Final league placing will decide if teams will play-off for the cup or shield titles. Where teams are level on points score difference will decide, or if that is equal, penalties. The round robins are followed by shield semi-final and final and then the cup final. Medals and trophies presented afterwards with team managers to select their captains. Because we will be in the hall for two hours each night there will be a charge of €4 per head to cover the cost of the hall. Please bring your own water and wear runners as no other footwear allowed. Remember, great quality footwear available at our indoor league sponsors, Ballyshannon Shoe Company! The under 12 indoor leagues will work on a similar format running off on Friday 6th November and Friday 13th November. We have the table and some pictures from last Friday’s action in the league up in the image gallery.HurlingColáiste Cholmcille had a great win at the Donegal Secondary Schools Tournament last Tuesday in Letterkenny. Still smarting from their disappointing defeat against Coláiste Feirste in the Casement Shield quarter-final the previous week, the lads were determined to win this event. Five schools took part on the day, Coláiste Cholmcille, St Coulmba’s Stranorlar, St Eunan’s College, Scoil Mhuire Buncrana and Carndonagh Community School. The lads played Scoil Mhuire in the first game which they won well, they followed that up with a convincing win over St Eunan’s and in their third game they won comfortably against Carndonagh Community School. As a result of these three wins they were into the final against Scoil Mhuire. They knew they would face a stiff challenge from the Buncrana outfit, but the lads were determined to win this inaugural Senior Secondary Schools title and they did it in style. They were in control from early on and all the panel of 18 played their part as Coláiste Cholmcille claimed the title with a very convincing display. They were worthy winners and all agreed that they were by far the strongest team on the day. It was a delighted Coláiste captain Oisin Rooney who collected the cup from Jason Ewing, Donegal Hurling Board, Chairman. It was a great day’s hurling very well organised by Kevin Hinphey Regional Hurling Development Officer, Ulster GAA. Check out Aodh Ruadh CLG on Facebook for some pictures from the victory.On Wednesday there was a Cumann na mBunscol Hurling/Camogie tournament in Donegal Town. Creevy NS, Killymard NS and Sessiaghoneill NS were the competing teams. In the hurling tournament Creevy had two convincing wins while in the camogie the girls beat Killymard and lost to Sessiaghoneill. It was a great event and it was very encouraging to have 16 boys and 12 girls representing Creevy in this event. There are pictures on from the tournament on the Aodh Ruadh CLG Facebook page.We are delighted to be associated with these events and thank both Coláiste Cholmcille and Creevy NS for entering the tournaments and supporting our efforts promoting hurling in both schools.Abbey Centre BingoLast week’s €400 bingo jackpot was won by Damien McGurl of Bundoran.
