President Barack Obama got back on the road, leaving Auburn Friday morning for the final leg of a two-day bus tour that focused on proposals for cutting college costs.
The president spoke at New York's Binghamton University and moved to a less formal town hall forum, even taking some questions from students. After a short speech, he took questions from students and faculty at BU.
While questions varied, much of the focus was still on financial stress and the ability to get a good education at a good value.
The president is promoting his plan for a new government rating system for colleges that would judge institutions on their costs and quality. He's also calling on schools to innovate by offering students opportunities like online learning. Finally, the president wants more students to take advantage of a federal program that caps student loan repayments.
From Binghamton, the president got back on the bus to head to Scranton, Pennsylvannia to speak at Lackawanna College.
