31 Answers to Your Questions About College: Welcome from ICI President Richard Ludwick

October 15, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


Hi, my name is Richard Ludwick, and I’m the
president of Independent Colleges of Indiana, or ICI for short. ICI is Indiana’s collection of 31 private,
nonprofit colleges and universities. We work together to find financial aid and
make college affordable for all students, whether you attend a private college or a
public university. We hope that every student will find his or
her best fit for college and find success in that fit. What we’ve been doing over the past few months
is talking to high school students and their guidance counselors and college admissions
professionals about the questions that arise most when looking for college. So we’ve compiled a list of those questions
and we’ve come up with a campaign for this fall that starts on Monday, September 19th
called 31 Answers to Your Questions About College. Each day – each school day – we will have
answers to the questions that you’ve provided us that comes directly from our college students
and faculty and, or staff on those campuses. You can get the straight answer to your real
questions about going to college. We hope you will discover just how affordable
a private college education can be. We want to give you the information about
all the various kinds of financial aid that are available, so that you can make an informed
choice about what college you attend, whether public or private. We know that college sticker prices or the
posted can seem high, but the reality is that most students don’t pay what the sticker price
is with the availability of financial aid, both from the campus itself and from government
sources. Most families can find that their fit for
college or their best choice is really affordable. You know at ICI our mission statement says
that we are to be the collective voice for excellence and choice in higher education
for all students. That is something that we take to heart. We’re here to help you find that right fit
in college. 31 Answers ends on October 31st, but it doesn’t
go away then. It will remain up on our website for you to
refer back to when you’re filling out your applications or making those college decisions. Happy watching and learning, and if there’s
anything else at all we can do to help you with your college search, please contact us.
