Last week the team at Akademos received a visit from some of Connecticut’s government officials as they toured the state visiting education organizations and growing businesses. Lieutenant Governor Nancy Wyman, State Senator Bob Duff, and State Representatives Bruce Morris and Chris Perone all stopped by Akademos’ corporate headquarters in Norwalk, CT to talk about textbook affordability and overall college affordability.
Our interns, Rebecca Stabinsky and Marissa Intrieri were front and center. Rebecca made sure to grill the CT officials about what they are doing to improve the affordability of a college degree, citing rising student debt and the increased need to work one or more jobs to afford college as rising issues.
Below are some pictures from the visit.
