Alexandra Clegg ’09 and All Things Considered
host Michele Norris spoke on NPR Dec. 10 about the Colby Student Investment Association’s relative success in the stock market this fall. The club has significantly outperformed the Dow, NASDAQ, and S&P 500. Here’s how Norris introduced the story: “If you’ve been watching your retirement savings disappear over the last few months, we have some advice for you. Go to college.
