The Draw of Student Loans

For a lot of people the initial idea of student loans is negative. You don’t want to owe more money after you’ve finally finished going to school. Who wants to make all those payments for years and then lose money that they worked hard for? It’s something that you have to push yourself to agree to simply because, if you don’t, you’ll never be able to go to college and that idea sounds even worse than making payments after it’s over. But once you start looking at those student loans they get a little more appealing. […]

Taking On College Loan Repayment As a Couple

When you’re young and decide to take out those student loans you’re probably not thinking too much about how you’re going to repay them. You might be thinking a little about the future but you figure it’s going to be a while before those loans come due and then you’ll worry about it right? Well I know I was. I was really trying not to think about the time when those loans would be due and I would need to give that money back. Even though I didn’t borrow much I still knew I didn’t really want an extra bill every month (which is the same thing a lot of students think. You can read more about it here.) […]

Having Student Loans Takes a Toll

For many people there is no way around taking out student loans. You find yourself stuck between not going to college at all and getting a loan to help you pay for it.

Free College For Everyone?

For many years in the times of our grandparents and great-grandparents, school wasn’t a necessity. Children barely finished middle school and few went on to high school unless their families were wealthy. By the time our parents came along it was more common to graduate high school but still not everyone did it. There were plenty of factory jobs around the country and recent graduates or even near graduates could easily get a job working those factory lines. Those jobs paid well and they required very little education which was definitely a benefit for our parents’ generation. […]

What if You Can’t Afford College?

You may think, college is just way to expensive. There’s no way that I can afford the classes and tuition and all those extra expenses. Maybe you’ve already thought about it and now you aren’t sure what you should do because when you signed up they sent you that big old bill and you decided, not for me. Well I know that when I first looked at the cost of my classes I second-guessed things too. I thought, wow all that just to sit in one classroom?
