Financing college is a challenge many students face. Follow the stories of borrowers from different backgrounds affected by the student lending industry.

Currently borrowers have no bankruptcy protection, no cap on fees and penalties, and no recourse to law after graduating from college. The consequences are dire for students who are unable to repay their loans.
