Crushing, inescapable student debt is a national crisis that no one seems to be in any hurry to address—no one, that is, except Northeastern University in Boston, which is texting alumni with an extremely fucked up offer.
What is this? I would be so mad if my alma mater sent me this ridiculous text. Which upper guy decided to approve this and how does this even make sense?
Give money to possibly (not guaranteed) get money back…There’s no way you can spin it for it to be slightly reasonable.
The student debt problem is huge only in the United States. Why don’t we try to lower the cost of tuition and create a concrete plan to help students repay whatever debt they might incur.
Good job NU…good job.
