With the recent move to overhaul the federal student loan program , it's an appropriate time to reassess the impact of debt on college graduates.
Grinnell College President Russell Osgood believes that while education loans have been criticized for overly encumbering students, there is a strong case that students are more engaged with their education when they have a personal financial stake in it.
Grinnell College’s Sam Raife ’10 (pictured), from Des Moines, Iowa (Roosevelt), has been named the Midwest Conference Men’s Tennis Performer of the Week.
Due to injuries, Raife played up two spots over the weekend and still went a perfect 6-for-6, winning three singles matches and three doubles matches as Grinnell College blanked Ripon College and St. Norbert College 9-0 and Lawrence University by a 7-2 score.
Ben Pope, '12 (pictured), a right-hander from Maryville, Tenn. (Alcoa HS), has been named Midwest Conference Pitcher of the Week.
Pope fired a complete-game four-hitter in a 4-0 victory over Illinois College Saturday, guaranteeing the Pioneers at least a tie of the Midwest Conference South Division. He fanned four batters as Grinnell moved to 8-0 in league play and 17-11 overall.
The Grinnell College baseball doubleheader at William Penn University in Oskaloosa on Wednesday has been postponed due to rain. The contests will now just be a single game, starting at 6 p.m. Thursday.
The Grinnell College men’s tennis team is well-represented in the latest NCAA Division III Central Region rankings released by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.

Juan Carlos Perez ’11 (pictured) is ranked both in singles and doubles. He is eighth in the region in singles and 14th in doubles with Dmitriy Glumov ’12.
