College education has become unbelievably expensive, which causes many students and their parents to incur enormous student loan debt. This debt can be a lifetime burden. In this seminar, Bob Fry will consider practical and biblical perspectives on debt and share resources that can help with lowering college costs, obtaining scholarships, earning degrees through work-based assistance, and other opportunities that collectively can allow students to get the degree they desire without carrying a burdensome debt.
