Associate Director of Financial Aid Michael Fraher replaced Marla Orr MacKenzie as director of financial aid. "My job," he told The Miscellany News in September, "is to get kids through the system." Fraher described his "system" as a balance between the "uniform methodology" required by various regulations and each student's personal needs. The former director of financial aid at Marist College, he served as associate director at Vassar for three years prior to becoming director.
