This is the question that the Investigative Journalism class (JRN 4600) at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke is trying to answer. We intend to use every available resource to crunch raw data, explore socioeconomic factors and unearth the humanity behind this prominent issue.
College students face numerous problems in transitioning into adulthood yet bearing the full brunt of personal financial strain. It’s a frightening prospect as economic factors become painfully relevant in a brief period of time.
This final product of this project will clarify the economic convolution that so many students seem to be drowning in.
Our progress will be tracked on this blog from our initial research to details on our informative and interactive final product.
