NEW ORLEANS (April 16, 2021) – Editor’s note: The following interviews were conducted by Marissa Pittman, with photography by J’Brionne Helaire.

Brooklyn Anderson

Freshman

Film

Cleveland

“I didn’t qualify, so I will still be a broke college student.”

Hildevert Lafeuille

Sophomore

Film

San Antonio

“It will affect me in a positive way. As a college student, getting money is good stuff. It will really be helpful, especially for little expenses like gas and cars.”  

 

Iysis Howard

Junior

Criminal Justice

Los Angeles

“It is helpful during these times. A few of us are unemployed or not making as much as we would pre-COVID.”  

 

Paulina Webber

Sophomore

English

Little Rock, Arkansas

“The extra $1,400 will help repair winter-storm damage on our home. It would have put a burden on us out of pocket, but the stimulus can cover that.”

 

Chad Fuselier

Junior

Accounting

Lafayette 

“It is probably not going to me. My family can definitely use it. My little brother just had surgery on his shoulder, and my dad is retired. They will probably save it for my younger brother’s college fund. It’s impacting a lot of my family, and I am really appreciative.”
