Issues & Ale: College Affordability & Access
Tues, October 27, 6:30 - 8:00 PM
720 Norris St, Ypsilanti, MI
College affordability is a big issue, from the living rooms of anxious students and parents, to the presidential campaign trail . Over the past ten years, tuition costs have increased more than five times faster than the Consumer Price Index and the average class of 2015 graduate with student-loan debt will have to pay back more than $35,000. Michigan’s students leave college with some of the highest debt levels in the nation .
What impact do those costs have on first generation or lower income students trying to decide if college is still a path to future success and moving up the income ladder? Join us for this State of Opportunity discussion, hosted by Michigan Radio's Jennifer Guerra. Issues and Ale is an event series from Michigan Radio designed to engage people in conversations about important issues facing Michigan...in an informal atmosphere. Stop by, have a drink, and join in the conversation.
