Questions on the sky-high cost of college


I have to ask this because, immediately on graduating from a fine liberal arts college, I took a “slog job” just to keep going until I had sorted out what sort of work I was good at and could best pursue for my own benefit and that of others. Most of my friends did the same thing, and we ended up pretty well. But of course, we did not have college loans to pay off. My tuition at Boston University was $400 a year.

Hey, somebody — do something to help these kids!
