Worcester Telegram & Gazette - College is a good investment

An opinion piece written by Assumption College President Francesco Cesareo recently appeared in the Dec. 29 issue of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette. Titled "College is a good investment", the article articulates the value of higher education and the liberal arts:

"A slowly recovering economy, a challenging job market and a strong media focus on student loan repayment and default rates have some parents and student borrowers asking if it was worth it …I offer a resounding “Yes!” to the question…but only if students and their parents make informed decisions, carefully consider affordability issues and have frank conversations with financial aid advisers as they explore college options."
