A quick definition of special housing unit:

Special Housing Unit: A special area in a prison where inmates are kept separate from the rest of the prisoners. This is usually done as a punishment for breaking the rules or for safety reasons. Inmates in this unit have fewer privileges than other prisoners.

A more thorough explanation:

A special housing unit (SHU) is a section of a prison that is used to house inmates who have been separated from the general prison population. This separation is usually due to disciplinary reasons or safety concerns.

Inmates in the SHU typically have fewer privileges than other inmates. They may be confined to their cells for longer periods of time and have limited access to recreational activities or social interaction with other inmates.

Examples of reasons why an inmate may be placed in the SHU include:

  • Violating prison rules
  • Being involved in gang activity
  • Being a high-profile inmate who requires extra security
  • Being a danger to themselves or others

For example, if an inmate is caught with contraband such as drugs or weapons, they may be placed in the SHU as punishment. Similarly, if an inmate is known to be a member of a prison gang and is deemed a threat to other inmates, they may be placed in the SHU for their own safety.

The SHU is a necessary component of prison management, as it allows for the separation and control of inmates who pose a risk to themselves or others. However, it is important to ensure that inmates in the SHU are treated fairly and humanely, and that their rights are respected.

I mean fuck it right. Like, maybe they can help somehow. Probably they can't but if the alternative is "i dont go to gulc" who cares

Idk I doubt they can give you 10k cash, lmao, but who knows!
Others will disagree, but max out a credit card if you have to do so.
It's 10K. Not 100K.

10K at 21.51% interest. Lol
19:47
Yeah I would definitely disagree. Without family help when could they realistically pay that off?

If someone can live below the student budget at GULC loans could cover an extra $10K, but Grad PLUS loans still amount to $2 in repayment for every $1 borrowed on a 10-year plan at current interest rates. Not a choice to make lightly.
