What kind of college doesn’t accept loans?

To the Editor:

What kind of community college doesn’t accept student loans? Paul D. Camp does not accept student loans. Oh, they will take free federal money from grants but will not accept federal direct loans to students. I have never heard of such a thing.

It makes it very difficult for a young student who lives in Southampton County to attend community college in the town where they live and work. If you don’t qualify for government help then you have to pay out of pocket to attend Paul D Camp, because they will not take any of your student loans. So, basically, this college is for low-income families and should be advertised as such.

So now we will have to apply to TCC, who does accept student loans and drive a much greater distance. This is absurd.

Paul D. Camp needs to reevaluate their financial aid department and make some much-needed changes.

    That’s like when we got a Lowe’s home store here. I drove there to buy 3 normal things, and two of them they did not offer. I asked why, upset about it, and they said “this” (Franklin) Lowe’s is not a full size store! What?! They didn’t tell us that when they were announcing what a great thing it was when we got the store. Kind of like the half-a—- community college we got! Same thing!

    Sounds about par for the course—everything else is geared to advantage for the takers. Why should this be any different? Quit working and get on the gravy train with everybody else. Independence is not in style anymore.
