As I’ve posted before, the Minnesota State University Student Association is collecting the stories of recent grads who are living with student debt, to show how it affects their lives and the economy.
It has surveyed more than three dozen students so far, and has posted this video — the story of Winona State University grad Josh Martin.
The association is pushing forward with the video idea, and now wants to create a series of video testimonials that go more in-depth.
It’s asking students to swing by its office to meet students, munch some foo, fill out a survey and record your story:
- Thursday, March 3
- 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
- MSUSA Office
Here’s the association’s Facebook page on the project.
