Sherrod Brown Presentation "Prevent Student Loan Interest Rates from DOUBLING!" - May 3rd!

From  UC Undergraduate Student Government:

On Thursday May 3rd at 11:00 AM in the 300 level of University Pavilion, United States Senator Sherrod Brown will be speaking about legislation he introduced yesterday intended to prevent interest rates from increasing on Federal Student Loans. 

Rates are currently set to double from 3.4% to 6.8% on July 1st, which would force 7.4 million American students to pay thousands of dollars more each year in interest.

I encourage everyone who is even slightly interested in student affairs and legislation to attend the rally. Senator Brown is a fantastic public speaker and this issue directly impacts one of UC's main goals as a public institution, providing an affordable and attainable college education for all.

The senator as well as myself would love to see a large number of students there to impress to the media how important the issue of college affordability is to students across the nation and also to show how engaged and passionate our UC students are. I personally believe that this is both a great opportunity and an important responsibility for student government members to serve as the voice of students. 

-Cody Clark
Senator Emeritus
