STUDENT LOANS: Aside from borrowing student loans, some students help pay for school by taking a job on the side. Some pick the opposite route and trade in their studies for the party scene. These decisions, good or bad, have the potential to postpone graduation in four years and increase
the amount of student loans borrowed. Instead of paying for what they want to buy like a house or car, recent graduates will have to start paying off their student loan debt.
INTERVIEWS: Student Jessica McDonald, university financial aid officer Sue Smith and economics Professor John Sherman about the impact student loans have on the economy.
VISUALS: Possible chart or graph of average student loan debt over time.
NEWS VALUES: Timeliness, proximity, impact
