Student Loan Repayment Awareness Week Has Arrived!  The Office of Public Interest is working with the Public Interest Student Coalition and Progressive People of Color Caucus to spread the word about the new federal Income-Based Repayment option, the federal Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, and WCL's Public Interest Loan Repayment Assistance Program (PILRAP).  Regardless of whether you are seeking private sector or public sector employment, these programs are likely to  impact how you repay your student loans.  Learn more at one of our programs, or stop by the table in the lobby.  The week concludes with a happy hour on Friday.
