During the fall 2019 semester, NTC’s Beta Rho Zeta chapter of Phi Theta Kappa completed a College Project focused on college readiness as it relates to paying for college and understanding student debt. They surveyed several groups including attendees of the 2019 Bridging the Dream Tour in Madison, current NTC dual credit students, and current NTC students.

Using the results from the surveys, they created a Funding Your Education handout to debunk myths and close gaps in information. The project also resulted in a “choose your own adventure” interactive activity anyone can participate in to learn more about the different ways you can pay for college.

Beta Rho Zeta invites you to check out the resources:
