Student Lobbyists for a Day
On March 24, President L. Jay Lemons led a group of four students to the Pennsylvania state capitol building in Harrisburg for Student Lobby Day. The group visited several legislators representing the district in which Susquehanna University resides and surrounding districts. They encouraged support for Gov. Ed Rendell’s plan to add $45 million to the PHEAA grant program but voiced concern about the additional tuition relief applying only to students attending state-owned universities and community colleges.
