Segment 1:

College students in Utah have the lowest student loan debt in the country. But according to a Salt Lake Tribune survey of Utah lawyers, more and more clients saddled with student loans are showing up seeking help through bankruptcy. On Monday, we’ll talk about the high cost of higher education and what could happen if student loan interest rates go up.
