I manage to attend a private college in NW Iowa. Being a single mother i have had some concerns about school practices. But i have no idea what my rights are. Things like mandatory attendance to cultural and academic events outside of class to graduate, lack of commuter parking/privelages, or family housing. I attend this school because it is the leader in it's field and is the only school in the US to be totally wireless and give it's students laptops to use and buy while enrolled. I know that this is a private school, but why can't i get the same treatment as the other, better off, traditionall students. I know that i should have to work for what i get, but i would rather get a loan to pay for student housing, than rely on the state to support me for four years. I feel so hopeless when i have to rely on someone else. Where can i turn for some information and support at a private school?
