These days, many students have the fear of never being able to pay off their student loans. For these simple reasons, October 2018, college students across US held a National Day of Action. They demand free public higher education as part of the #FreeCollege4All campaign.

“Working class, first-generation students like myself grew up envisioning college as an out-of-reach luxury,” said Nicole Reyes, a student at the University of Illinois-Chicago.

She also added:

“Now I face mounting student debt, which I am forced to prioritize over my already difficult living expenses.”
