Each year, a group of NYU students, alumni, and staff travel to the New York State capitol to advocate for the expansion of state financial aid. Many of the students who meet with legislators to share their personal stories are themselves the recipients of state-funded education aid through programs such as Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP), the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), or the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP). This February 10, 2015, 102 people joined in the 30th annual NYU Albany Day for face-to-face advocacy in a total of 20 meetings with legislators and staff. This video follows one NYU freshman in her quest to make her voice heard.
