Whoever said, “Tis better to give than to receive,” was surely speaking in terms of holiday cheer, and not student loan debt. This year amidst your much-deserved winter laziness, don’t get so lazy that you miss out on important financial aid and priority admissions deadlines.

Be a productive elf this winter, and get ready to kick off 2012—and your college career—with a sled-load of cash!
