Don't Double Our Rates: Graduation Ribbons

Last updated: 5/2/2013

If Congress doesn't act by July 1st, the interest rate on federal student loans will DOUBLE, costing over 7 million students $1,000 more per loan, per year.

As we graduate, let’s stand in solidarity with students and families across the country struggling with student loan debt by wearing ribbons on our gowns.

Together, we will remind Congress of the growing burden of student debt. During this joyous occasion we will work together to make sure access to higher education remains for the students of tomorrow.

Our staff in D.C. will show Congress photos of students wearing the ribbons to put a face on student loans. Please send us photos of you, your friends, and family wearing the ribbons and post them to Facebook.com/studentpirgs so we can add them to our album.
