This week's quotes focus on the state of the economy and its implications for the financial aid office:
"CSN [College of Southern Nevada] Financial Aid Director Peter Hurley says their applications are up 82-percent from this same time last year. If this trend continues, they're expecting 35,000 students to apply for help for next year putting a strain on their work study programs and grants. "It can only go to so many people and make a difference. I can't give everybody $5 and expect to have a positive impact on enrollment," said Hurley."
