New College Liftoff Site is Live!

The Unison just launched the new College Liftoff site on Monday!

College Liftoff helps families of all financial and educational backgrounds invest in higher education. The Columbus, OH headquarters launched in May 2009.

College Planning with College Liftoff

If you were like me coming out of high school, paying for college did not seem like a pressing issue.  I was fortunate to get some scholarships here and there but with the easily attained loans I never felt the need or urge to really explore all of the free scholarship and grant money that is out there.  Since I never saw the money it never bothered me to just add to my student loan debt.

Looking back after being out of college for 3 years and paying on all of those loans, I realized that I did myself a great disservice by not preparing myself financially for the costs of a college education.  This is a big problem with many college grads and can become a huge burden that can limit their future career and lifestyle. (Here is a great article from USA Today about Generation Y’s steep financial hurdles: Huge debt, no savings)

Recently at The Unison (a web design company based out of Columbus, Ohio) we have become involved with Aaron Greene and College Liftoff.  They are a relatively new company that specializes in  helping students and families find the right school and education while decreasing the financial burden that comes along with a college education.  From school and scholarship research to financial aid seminars they can be a huge resource to set college students up for long term success.
