As Northumberland County high school grads prepare to go off to university and college next fall, there are major changes taking place in regards to finances.

In this podcast, Canadian  Federation of Students (Ontario) Chair Nour Alideeb talks about the impact of a 10 per cent reduction in tuition for post-secondary students.

While it appears to be good news for some, the results will mean no more free tuition for those in need, more loans, and fewer grants, she explained. Other proposals included in this announcement by the federal government will impact student activity fees, leaving student government and other activities on campus in jeopardy, she said.
