I love my college. I love it so much that I never gave up my dream of being accepted there, even after receiving a rejection letter. I love it because it offers exactly what I want to learn and in spite of the fact that I really can't afford it. The crazy thing is that I'm not an anomaly on my campus. There are tons of Facebook groups where students from my school discuss their struggle to pay for the next semester and ask each other for advice on how to finance their education. With the fall semester looming, statuses are all turning toward the deadline for tuition payment, scholarships (and how there aren't enough), and the stress of coming up with tens of thousands of dollars twice a year. It doesn't end there, though. For all of my college graduates out there, congratulations! Are you still talking about how you're going to pay off your student loans? I bet you are.
