College Goal Georgia helps current and future students navigate the Free Application for Student Aid or FAFSA. Financial aid experts were on hand to help students with the online applications.

"As far as working with financial aid every day we see students that come in that's not prepared to go to school and being able to go to school financially is a big burden on families, so to reduce some of that burden we actually think that its our duty to help the community reach their goal," Janifer Morgan said, Manager of Financial Aid Services.

The program was free. Participants also walked away with free goody bags and prizes.
