— State grants no reassurance to low income college students – Mark Brown  (DIERSEN: Were you a low income college student?  I was not. I paid for my college expenses while I attended UIC full-time 1966-1968 and then NIU full-time 1969-1970 with money that I earned working for the Park Forest Post Office for about $15/hour in today’s dollars part-time during the school years and full-time during the summers of 1967, 1968, and 1969. My outstanding parents provided me with room and board in their home in Crete 1966, 1967, 1968, weekends during my first semester at NIU in 1969, and the summer of 1969. That allowed me to save enough money to stay at University Plaza Dormitory for two semesters in 1969 and one in 1970 and then to share an apartment for the 1970 summer session at Lincolnshire West Apartments.  I graduated debt-free in August of 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in management, a 1969 Dodge Charger SE, and a job working for Firestone in its Chicago Heights store.)
