Degree vs. Debt

Time: 6:30 pm-8:00 pm


The impact of rising student loans on the lifetime economic value of a college degree will be examined by a student-led panel hosted by Humboldt State University economics majors on Thursday, October 17, at 6:30 p.m. in the Native American Forum (Room 162), opposite the Behavioral and Social Sciences Building.
Led by HSU undergraduates Elica Aramesh and Jeff Grabinski, the panel of higher education leaders and local economic analysts will measure the impact of high indebtedness on current students who face an uncertain job market. The panel also will gauge the longer-term affordability and sustainability of the nation’s existing post-secondary education system.
Speakers will include Humboldt State President Rollin Richmond, College of the Redwoods President Kathryn Smith, Humboldt County Director of Economic Development Jacqueline Debets, Edward Jones Financial Advisor and Humboldt County Workforce Investment Board member Bryan Plumley and HSU Career Center Development Coordinator Joy Soll.

Additional Public Info: A live broadcast will be available on
