DURHAM - Hillary Clinton told students at the University of New Hampshire on Friday about her plans to make college more affordable for students across the country.
Stating the New Hampshire students carry some of the highest loan debts in the U.S., she said the Granite State was the perfect place to discuss her plan.
“I'm hoping to hear it’s going to get cheaper," said UNH student Tom Sievewright. "I don’t know how she can do that, but hopefully she can find a way.”
Clinton told the crowd a college education should be obtainable to anyone who wants one.
“We’ve got to make it easier for students to get a higher education," she said. "No student should have to borrow to attend a public school or university."
For out-of-state students who attend and live on campus at UNH, just 1 year totals over $40,000.
“It’s definitely crazy, and I hope Hillary Clinton can do something about that," said student Mike Saleski.
“I’m worried that I’ll have to pay my loans for years to come," added Nick Bradley.
But some students said they’re willing to take on the big bills in order to get an established degree.
“When it comes down to it, it’s totally worth it," said Tom Sachs. "And really it’s the next thing for a bright future. So – I can’t complain.”
