A liberal arts college in Michigan is offering its future broke, college grads loan repayment assistance to its incoming freshman.
U.S. borrowers have accumulated around $1 billion in loans and schools like Yale and The University of Pennsylvania have been forced to take extreme measures. They're suing students.
