The Bureau of Labor and Statistics states that textbook prices have increased over 1000% within a 30 year span. Sources suggest that students should consider budgeting between $1200- $1400 towards textbooks.   

By addressing this need for textbooks, Hill mentioned that the overall results of Giving Day 2019 were humbling.

I came away from each call (to a recipient) confident that Finlandia is providing an excellent education and the students are engaged in learning and applying what they have learned,” said Hill. 

Donations will be accepted through the Finlandia website and Facebook page on March 18. Donors can also call the Finlandia Advancement Office to donate, or make a check payable to Finlandia University.
