The Cost of College

Creating images that convey data. 

When I began this project I knew it could be a monster. There are so many data sets to draw from and veiws to take on the subject. So far I've gotten it down to 6 areas of focus. What am I trying to get across?

 

Current opinions on the cost of college vary greatly. I want to illustrate the current costs in the context of historical comparison.
