In the lead up to the Sallie Mae shareholder meeting and vote on Stafford Loan interest rates in Congress this summer, students across the country will be holding actions during their graduation. This will allow us the opportunity to reach parents, grandparents, younger siblings, and make provide some excitement to our base.

SLAP is excited to use this as an opportunity to kick off “Debt-for-Diplomas” – where students will attach cardboard shaped like a price tag to their tassel with how much debt their graduating with. This is a simple, no-cost graduation action that we know we can get a lot of press for, but we know that you all have some creative plans up your sleeves.

Tell us what you have planned in this form, and be sure to write up a report on how it goes!
