Colloquium: The College Debt Trap

Colloquium: The College Debt Trap

In an effort to nourish collegial dialogue across disciplinary boundaries among faculty and students, EKU Libraries is hosting hour-long, informally moderated colloquiums on selected Fridays at 3:30 p.m. in the new Crabbe Library Research and Instruction Commons Conference Room, 204G.

Each colloquium session is devoted to text, video or audio material chosen by a faculty member who moderates the discussion. The material may be of any subject, scholarly or topical, peer-reviewed or popular, as well as original work. The only requirement is that the item(s) under discussion be accessible online (including any of EKU Libraries’ many subscription resources).

On Friday, March 25, 2011 Dr. Eric J. Fuchs will moderate discussion of The College Debt Trap:

The college debt trap: What is it, how to avoid it, and how to start off on the sound personal financial footing, since ‘the more debt you take on now, the greater your commitment is to a lower standard of living in the future.
