During our community session with the Philadelphia Parking Authority, every resident from the community will get an opportunity to sit with a representative from the Philadelphia Parking Authority to ask questions and address their concerns as well. They will have laptops on hand so that they can look up your information as well. At the conclusion of this session, the community will come together at a later date to create some reforms for Parking Authority that we will send to the Mayor, City Council, and the Philadelphia Parking Authority. This will be a community-driven Initiative. I honestly believe that the Philadelphia Parking Authority has contributed to the high poverty rate here in Philadelphia and it must be addressed. See you guys on Tuesday.

This Wharton alum’s startup helps college students negotiate their financial aid packages

In launching her startup Frank, 2013 Wharton graduate Charlie Javice set out to help people exactly like Lac.

Frank has already attracted significant interest from investors, and recently raised $10 million in funding. Frank’s new lead investor is 1984 Wharton graduate Marc Rowan.

    This Wharton alum's startup helps college students negotiate their financial aid packages
    When College junior Kenneth Lac was applying to college, he had to fill out all his financial aid applications himself - his parents, first-generation immigrants, did not speak enough English to be able to complete the forms. When his mother lost her job at the start of last semester, Lac had to renegotiate his financial aid by himself, a process he described as "a struggle" that made tasks like buying textbooks for class and applying for study abroad programs extremely complicated.
