Why are we dumping all the recycled material into one bin? I thought we were suppose to separate everything into different bins?

In the past that was true.  With single stream you do not need to separate.  This is the trend in the industry and it means that intuition like Doane only need one bin in a room to handle all the recycling. 

Why did I not receive a receipt of my gift?

If you are giving through payroll deduction, you will receive a receipt at the end of the calendar year which will show your total payroll giving throughout the year to be used for tax purposes.  All other gift types will receive a gift receipt when the donation is made. 

Why should I fill out the FAFSA?

Completing and submitting a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the single most important thing you can do to get assistance paying for college. The U.S. Department of Education uses the FAFSA to determine students’ eligibility for federal student aid. Every year, the federal government awards about $150 billion in the form of grants, work-study funds, and low-interest loans to help millions of students pay for college. Many state governments and colleges also use the FAFSA to determine eligibility for nonfederal aid. Unfortunately, some students feel like they shouldn’t bother filling out a FAFSA because of some common myths. 


These include:


  • “I (or my parents) make too much money, so I won’t qualify for aid.”

  • “Only students with good grades get financial aid.”

  • “I’m too old to get financial aid.”

  • “The form is too hard to fill out.”

  • However, these concerns are usually unfounded. For more information, download “Myths About Financial Aid” at http://studentaid.ed.gov/sites/default/files/financial-aid-myths.pdf.

Why was the recycling dumped into the garbage truck?

The recycling truck is the same vehicle as the garbage truck.  If there is trash in the recycling bin the garbage truck will haul all of the recycling into the trash.  This can be because of carless people dumping trash into the wrong bin or the trash bin is full and the overflow is going into the recycling bin.

Will I get a mailbox on campus?

All students receive a campus mailbox. Mailboxes are located within the Service Bureau, on the lower-level of Perry Campus Center.


In addition, the same services provided at the Service Bureau to on-campus students, are also available to you, as a commuter student.

Will I need to fill out the FAFSA each year?

Yes.


Because eligibility for federal student aid does not carry over from one award year to the next, you need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for each award year in which you are or plan to be a student. Your eligibility for financial aid can differ from year to year for various reasons, including your family’s financial situation and the number of your family members enrolled in college.
