BOWIE, MD - This afternoon, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer (MD-05) joined Bowie State President Dr. Aminta Breaux for a roundtable with students to discuss a range of issues, including college affordability and support for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
"I was pleased to meet with Dr. Breaux and students from Bowie State University this afternoon," said Congressman Hoyer. "As Congress prepares to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, it's important to hear directly from students about the issues they face in pursuing higher education. Ensuring higher education is accessible to more students is an issue of critical concern to many students at Bowie State University, and throughout our state. I appreciated the opportunity to hear directly from students about the issues they care about, including student loans, simplifying the FAFSA process and the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program."
"Supporting students of color and HBCUs is an important priority for me in Congress," continued Congressman Hoyer. "As the oldest HBCU in Maryland, Bowie State University prepares thousands of students each year for success in our communities. I join in thanking Dr. Breaux and the student leaders at Bowie State University for their leadership."
