Debt-Free College - Robert P. Fry, Jr.
March 3, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM
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 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.
