"the cost is always one of the major concerns. “How much is this going to cost me? How am I going to afford it when I’m’ done? What are my options for paying for it? What can we do in order to keep the cost low?”"

"right now the average is about $37,000 for a student graduating. And so, they go into the workforce with about $37,000 in debt today."

"however, when you look at the state of Utah, we are the number one in the country with an average student debt of $18,425."
