Message From Default Management
Are you stressing about student loans?!?

When you start school, the topic you worry about the most is: How will I ever repay my student loans when I graduate? Well I am here to tell you that the key to not stressing about student loans is educating yourself from day one in the FA office. Ask questions! Know what type of loans you have and how much you received in grants. Second, the most beneficial (although the hardest time) time to make payments towards your loans is when you're attending school. A portion of your balance does not have interest while you're a student. If at all possible, take advantage of sending an extra $10 or $20 to pay off your loans from the moment you start school, so that by the time you graduate your balance will have decreased significantly. Also there are many different repayment options. You can find a repayment option that fits your life and budget. Make sure you communicate with your lender.
"Student loans will never overcome you if you're educated" 
Get informed! Don't stress!

St. Peters gives a big

to EIC for our

December 2018 donation
EIC Helps Our Community!
St. Peters food pantry, located in Belleville, was thrilled to accept our donation. Thank you to all the students and staff for their generosity.

Together we were able to donate one large box of food and a medium size bag of children's clothing.

Winter Clothing Drive
HURRY : Deadline to donate is Friday, Feb. 15th
We are collecting blankets, hats, scarves, coats and any other clothing that would benefit our community of people who are disadvantaged and less fortunate than we are.

Please bring items in and place them in the navy blue box in the lobby area. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Student Council Board Members.

Are you in need of winter clothing?
