By Ashley Wermick |

Flagler college alumnus Logan Abrams believes that debt is one of the biggest issues facing college students.

Abrams came to St. Augustine to speak to students about this rising problem, which he addresses in his book “Debt U: How Higher Education Breeds a Lifestyle of Debt.” The book looks at college debt from 1999 to 2009 and beyond by using facts, figures and stories of real people who are in or have gotten out of debt.
