Merkley hears students about college costs

Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley toured several Oregon campuses to hear students talk about the high cost of college — and to promote his proposals to help them.
“The stories vary a great deal,” Merkley said Thursday after meeting about 30 students at Chemeketa Community College in Salem.
“But what they have in common is that the process of going to college has become a financial gauntlet, with students stressing over each moment. This (higher education) is critical to the path of opportunity for every child to be able to thrive in America.”
He ended his five-city tour with a rally at Portland State University. Other stops were at the University of Oregon and the Oregon State University campuses in Corvallis and Bend.
