Senators Kaine and Warner invited students from 20 Virginia colleges and universities
to share their concerns about student debt.
Ferrum - Ferrum College Student Government Association President Danielle Hannuksela '16 joined
student leaders from 20 Virginia colleges and universities on Capitol Hill to share
their concerns about the rising costs of higher education during a roundtable discussion
hosted on Wed., Jan. 27, 2016, by U.S. Sens. Mark R. Warner and Tim Kaine (both D-VA).
Hannuksela traveled to Washington D.C. with Dr. Sandra Via, assistant professor of
political science at the College.
"The trip was a great experience and it was an honor to represent Ferrum College,"
said Hannuksela, who is pictured below speaking to the assembled roundtable participants.
"I was able to meet and connect with other student leaders from around Virginia and
share our input on student debt and the impacts it has and will continue to have on
graduates if college tuition continues to rise. I think Senator Warner and Senator
Kaine are very aware of the issue they are trying to solve and the main goal now is
how do we reasonably fix it."
