Introducing the New Fastweb Student Contributor Team
These students share the inside scoop.
One of the best ways to learn is by doing, and each year the Fastweb student contributor team is doing just that. Our student contributor team consists of real students, both high school and college, that are willing to share their experiences with Fastweb users—their peers. The 2022-23 Student Contributor team is sharing their knowledge by providing their latest ideas and offering support with their voices. We are proud to introduce Fastweb’s 11th annual, 2022-2023 student contributor team. This team focuses on relevant student-focused issues such as the college applications and admissions processes and applying for scholarships, as well as daily high school, college, and graduate student life topics.
Adding to their perspectives and experiences, this group of students has journeyed through unforeseen educational times. From standardized testing changes and managing coursework to completing or renewing their FAFSA—this year’s student writer team is eager to give Fastweb readers a first-hand narrative of the current educational landscape. Fastweb’s editorial team is honored to give these students, also Fastweb users, a platform to share their advice with fellow students and parents.
