CSU students hopeful Obama will help them

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Cleveland State University students who went to see President Obama today are looking for help paying for school.

Hardik Patel, a freshman enrolled in pre-med, said the tough economy means money isn't available for everyone. He hopes Obama will help students find the cash.

"Look at his plans for college students and helping them with loans. I think that will be beneficial to everyone in college right now," he said.

In January, Obama put colleges on notice about reining in soaring tuition. He wants to increase federal grant money available for low-interest loans and plans to tie it into schools' ability to lower tuition.

CSU student Tierra Harris said she's worried about job prospects when she graduates.

"I would say I am a little concerned, especially with how this economy is going right now," she said.
