“RNL has been an important strategic partner to the college for over 18 years. Their modeling has provided scenarios to leverage our institutional aid and guidance to continue our success during challenging enrollment times. Not only have we seen an increase in our enrollment size over the years, but also in the academic makeup of the incoming students.”
—Marie Fico, Director of Student Financial Services
