I was up late doing some thinking after the GOP debate on why membership at FDL is so important to me, and what benefits it offers to others who join.

I realized that I had a lot of experience on campaigns, and my grades were great, but I did not “get that involved.” What I am getting at here is that FDL is a great member benefits program to become a part of as a young college student or recent graduate.

 

As Students Return to College, Student Loan Fraudsters Rejoice
