To most students, the Financial Aid office is a small room in the basement of Holmes Hall where they are occasionally sent to sign over a paper or two. It has something to do with money, and every so often, these students get something in the mail that tells them just how much it's going to cost them to continue their education here at Illinois Wesleyan. They know that papers are filled out, usually by their parents, and then in a couple of months, a figure jumps out of nowhere and becomes "Your Financial Aid Package."
