A Student Perspective

Haley Bray ’15 thought she needed to attend a large Division I school to find the pride, prestige, social life and academic challenge she wanted. Her parents encouraged her to consider less expensive state schools. A private college like St. Norbert wasn't even in the picture until she attended a preview day with a friend. She loved it!

After meeting with her family at our financial aid office, she says, "We were able to learn about some additional sources of aid that my family wasn't aware of. The whole experience made me feel like I was a person and not just another number like at the other schools I had visited.

"With other scholarships, academic awards, work study and grants, the cost of St. Norbert was only slightly higher than a state school would have been and offered a better educational program. With the increasing cost of state schools, my parents felt that, in the end, it was a better value. And I realized that I found all of the things I was looking for right here at St. Norbert College."
