The Enrollment Services Division is holding an open house in honor of Jane Hessian upon her retirement following 34 years of service. Stop by Weeks Lounge for cake and coffee on Wednesday, May 16 between 3 and 4:30 p.m. to wish Jane well.
Jane came to the college in 1978 from nearby Milton College. She has watched the financial aid budget grow from just over $900,000 in 1978 to over $21,000,000 today. She arrived at the college when financial aid was largely a manual process. There were no desktop computers but there was plenty of paper. Since then, Jane has seen Datatel come and go and the financial aid application has gone online as has almost every other process. While Jane’s last official day as director of financial aid is May 31, she has agreed to stay on part-time through the summer to assist in the transition.
