The Iona College PRSSA has set up a website (ichitsthebooks.blogspot.com) for the Hit the Books Running event that will take place at the Boys and Girls Club (Remington Unit) on Thursday, February 26, 2009 at 5 PM at 116 Guion Place in New Rochelle.
The website provides information for students and their parents about college preparation topics such as getting good grades and the difference between loans, grants and scholarships. The site also features links to other websites like collegeboard.com and finaid.org that get visitors started in the college search and help with financial planning.
The College Bound Aid Hit the Books Running program gets students in middle school and the early high school years to start thinking about college. Along with stressing the importance of earning a degree in today's world, the program also gets students and their parents thinking about how they will pay for college.
