Broke, Busted, and Disgusted
NICC is offering a viewing of Broke, Busted, and Disgusted at the NICC Cresco Center. This is a powerful new documentary that was filmed and directed right here in our great state of Iowa.   Broke, Busted, and Disgusted, takes a look at the growing student loan debt issue that students are facing.  The movie is 53 minutes long and does an excellent job of diving into the issue.

The NICC Cresco Center is offering a free showing on Tuesday, March 29th, starting at 7:00 p.m.
