"Scholarslip" is a documentary about the student debt crisis in the United States. The 26-minute, student-produced production explores various issues surrounding higher education in the United States, focusing on the increasing costs of tuition, issues surrounding state and federal assistance for student debtors, and the arguably diminishing value of a college degree in the 21st century. The rising cost of higher education is a struggle for students across the nation, and this documentary gets at the heart of why this crisis affects the future of our nation. Feel free to watch, share and add to the discussion in the comments section.

Be part of Documentary of Student Loan Debt

November 18, 2012

I’m a junior at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, and I’m working with two other students to produce a full-length documentary questioning the increasing costs of higher education. Three students are featured in the production; each one is experiencing different personal and financial struggles, yet they share a common desire to pursue a college degree. We’ve interviewed politicians, university policymakers and those who have created lasting efforts to end the student debt crisis. We’re measuring the value of a college degree and, more specifically, calling into question how universities are, or are not, balancing the increasing quantity of students with the value of the education being offered.

In an effort to provide a voice for students across the entire nation, we need your help.

Here’s what we’re looking for, and it would be great if you could share this with others:

Step 1: On a piece of paper, write the dollar amount you owe or owed in student loans
Step 2: Below the dollar amount, write the name of the college you attend or attended
Step 3: Take a photo of yourself holding up this piece of paper
Step 3: Email your photo to jat3productions@gmail.com

**DEADLINE: Dec. 3, 2012**

Photos received before deadline will likely be featured in the film.
The student debt crisis extends far beyond Arizona. This is a national issue, and it’s time for students to step up and speak out. This documentary isn’t merely a school project. With your help, it’s going to make a difference.

Feel free to contact jat3productions@gmail.com with any questions. And please note that Dec. 3, 2012, is a hard deadline.

It’s incredible what today’s smartphones are capable of, especially when it comes to photo editing.

Using the iPhone application Instagram, I’ve applied filters to the above photos from my studies abroad in England, Ireland, Scotland and Switzerland.
