This article describes research on student loans done at Sweet Briar College, a small, private women's college in central Virginia. This research was inspired by a model presented by Dennis j Martin, Director of Financial Aid at Washington University in St. Louis. The authors present an example of the kind of cooperative research and analysis that is possible at a small college. Their research, like the loan attitude research conducted on a national population by NASFAA in 1985, and at Washington University by Dennis Martin in 1987, demonstrates a positive attitude toward student loans by alumnae.
