UMassFive College Federal Credit Union has positively impacted my life because without the loans I received through them, I wouldn’t have been able to pursue an undergraduate degree at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. I am very fortunate to have worked with UMassFive because it was a very easy process for my parents and I to navigate and take out loans to pay for my tuition. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2012, and I will be graduating from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in May 2018 with my Master in Public Health. Without the help of the UMassFive College Federal Credit Union, I would not have been able to pursue higher education, which has led me to a fulfilling career in the field of public health.
