Heard on Campus: A conversation with Congresswoman Susan Wild

Students met with Congresswoman Wild to discuss the College Affordability Act

“It is important to support schools that support our communities. I think higher education and educating young people is one of the principal ways we should spend federal tax dollars. Investing in our youth helps build the economy.”

 - U.S. Representative Susan Wild (D-7)
