MUSKEGON, Mich. (via WOOD TV) — For many students, attending college comes with the stress of looming loan debt.
Northern Michigan University student Eddrick Tornes is one of them. He is taking summer classes at Muskegon Community College.
“The good thing about it is you don't have to pay ‘til after you're done,” he said. “But if you want to transfer, then it's a hassle because you can't get your transcripts until you pay that debt that you owe that school.”

“I owe $2,500,” he said.
