    The federal funding went toward helping students who were hit hardest by the world pandemic.

    Trinity Washington University has paid off the college debt of nearly 40% of its students. Using $2.3 million over two weeks, the school wiped the slate clean for 535 students. The Catholic institution used funding from the American Rescue Plan to help those hit hardest by the world pandemic.

    According to the announcement from Trinity, the average payment was $4,299. The president of Trinity, Patricia McGuire, hailed the move as “the right thing to do,” in the wake of COVID-19. She explained in the statement:



    “Many of our students lost their jobs at restaurants and other service locations, and others were also the primary financial support for their families, making it hard to pay their tuition bills. While students could register for the next semester, they still had balances.”

    She said the federal funding was meant to help students with debt accrued during the pandemic months. Trinity’s tuition is the lowest of all D.C. private schools, which helped the money go a lot farther. The school also offers $6 million in scholarships annually.

    It's cool that they did this then & it makes sense that it would be a Catholic university that did it, a public school would never do something like this. I didn't go to university but if I could redo my life and go, I'd do my best to go to St. Leo as public universities are as bad, if not worse, than public K-12 schools except you pay an arm and a leg to go to them and then can't find a job when you get out and have to repay tens of thousands of dollars in student loans on the salary of a Starbucks manager. Usually this is because the public universities sucker kids into getting stupid degrees that can't be used to find a real life job (basically anything _____ studies, which the schools seem to push harder and harder with every freshman class coming in).
