American Student Assistance was founded in 1956 under the name Massachusetts Higher Education Assistance Corporation (MHEAC). The organization began when a group of people approached Massachusetts local businesses for philanthropic donations with the idea of creating a pool of money to guarantee loans for higher education. MHEAC went on to become the nation’s first student loan guarantor...
In 2001, ASA became one of four guarantors to enter into a Voluntary Flexible Agreement with the US federal government, changing its focus from back-end default collections to an emphasis on delinquency and default prevention.
"I wear the chain I forged in student life," replied the graduate. "I made it link by link, and yard by yard; I girded it on of my own free will, and of my own free will I wore it."
The roommate smashes open the door, letting the Red in. The protagonist falls backwards through the window, the roommate missing her grasp by inches.
Cut to body bag, zipping up over dead face of protagonist. A little Red seeping out around the edges of bag, dissipating as it closes.
VO: "Looks like another suicide..."
Fade through black to int. of modern office. Indistinct callcenter sounds, employees saying "financial services" over and over. Red mist swirling, knee-high, everywhere.
Cut to anonymous man in suit at desk, seen from rear, with two stacks of papers on desk. He grabs a sheet from one side, puts it front of him, hits it with a huge rubber stamp, presses the stamp to an ink pad, moves the sheet to the other stack. Over and over. Every time he presses the stamp to the ink pad, there is a revolting squelching sound: raw meat being hit with a hammer.
Cut to stack of finished sheets. The top of the page says "Application Form" in block letters. The stamp says "Approved", in thick, red ink. There are many applications underneath it. After a few seconds, another is placed on top.
Cut to black.
If it wasn't about student debt, I'd have thought it was an ad for a bizarro sex/drug cult. Face the Red, Ride the Snake.
And oh jesus, the tumblr, the tumblr! Check out the tumblr. My god, they're not just rich fat cats trying to sucker people into living on cat food so they get their slice, they also live completely outside of culture as we know it.
