As a fellow college student, I personally understand the desire to reach completion of my education. With the news of ITT Tech closing, leaving several students empty handed, I became greatly concerned for their future. The thought of their completed classes not counting and the inability to finish so close to graduation is unnerving.
ITT closed its doors abruptly, offering only minimal information to the students, leaving them with no recourse. For many of these students, ITT Tech offered them a second chance to better themselves and provide a stable future of employment.
ITT Tech states that the student loans may be forgiven, but is that enough? What could we, as a community, to help these students in finishing and furthering their education to pursue a career? I would like to see ITT make connections with other colleges for these students to resume a similar program.
The colleges should allow them to pick up where they left off in their studies, instead of having to start at the beginning. Please join me in supporting these students and do not let their hard work go unnoticed.
