The goal was as simple and straightforward: to get out of debt as fast as humanly possible. In his travel memoir, Walden on Wheels, Ken Ilgunas lays bare the existential crisis of graduating with thousands of dollars of debt. Guided by the frugality and philosophy of Thoreau, Ilgunas narrates his journey across the country and years spent living out of a van in a Duke University parking lot. In this lecture, Ilgunas will discuss his journey and what it can teach us about the cost of higher education today.
