  2. IS THE GI BILL WORKING?

    Are you a student veteran? Is the Post-9/11 GI Bill working? If so, we’d like to hear from you.

    The latest NewsiT assignment is about the GI Bill.  We have several, simple tasks in this assignment. Please log in and contribute to the story. It’s quick and easy. And please pass this on to anyone else who might be interested. Details on this and all other all open assignments can be found at our web site.

    NewsiT is a mobile crowd-reporting platform for creating and sharing quality news of personal relevance. Our “correspondents” are people from all walks of life, like me and you, who love to contribute and be a part of the story.  The more people that add to the assignment, the better.  Join in and report on the news that matters to you!

  3. Help us report: How will student debt affect your life?

    Student loan debt now exceeds total credit card debt in this country.  How student debt do you or will you have to pay off?  What does that mean for your financial future? Contribute to the assignment, tell your friends, and help NewsiT report this important and timely story.
