{August 22, 2008}   Crazy? I think so…

With tuition at Clemson going up around %6, I am thankful that my scholarship money increased at the same pace. If it weren’t for that, I along with many other students from middle class families may not have been able to attend Clemson this fall. Most of my friends are throwing down the big $$ to come to school. Some getting loans exceeding $40,00 A YEAR! What does this mean for our future? And, how are we supposed to have financial stability when we are going to be in debt for the rest of our lives because we wanted a good education. These days you almost always have to go to college to get a decent job. So where does that leave people who can’t afford it? People who are barely making ends meet as it is? Just a little food for thought.

How can we afford it?
