ILLUSTRATION BY BRANDON RAYGO

Paying off college debt can sometimes seem insurmountable. 

In the second episode of "The cost of opportunity," Katelyn Ferral sits down with Matt Oleson, a University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate who works in marketing, to talk about how he paid down more than $20,000 in debt in less than a year. We talk about how he did it, what he wishes he knew looking back and what he plans to do now.
