Three Earlham College students will join with students from Indiana’s other private, non-profit colleges and universities to deliver messages to Hoosier legislators on Tues., Feb. 12, 2013. This is the first of three student lobby days coordinated by Independent Colleges of Indiana.
Participants are students from Anderson University, Earlham College, Manchester University, Martin University, University of Indianapolis and Wabash College.
Students from other ICI campuses will visit the Statehouse on March 12 and April 9.
The student delegation plans to thank the legislators for their ongoing commitment to state need-based financial aid for students, to make their case for legislators’ continued support of this aid, and the critical importance of increasing the number of Hoosiers with bachelor’s degrees to the state’s economy.
Students will gather first at the Indiana History Center in Indianapolis before walking to the Statehouse to meet with their hometown legislators.
Earlham participants are Maggie Dooley of Indianapolis, Mandisa Marks of Bloomington and Mallory Reed of Columbus, accompanied by Cindy Parshall, associate dean of admissions and coordinator of campus visits.
