Ballweg Says College Can Be Affordable

State Representative Joan Ballweg says a college education is affordable in the state if you plan and save for it. Ballweg recently participated in a media panel at the UW-Fond du Lac on college affordability and student debt. She says it’s a misconception that people carrying student debt can’t afford things like homes and cars. She says people may not be able to afford some things, but that is because of the economy in general or because of the changes in life style, which may delay some purchases. Ballweg notes the UW Credit Union will refinance student debt even if you are not a member. Ballweg is on the Assembly’s Colleges and Universities Committee.
