• When i stated students should be given at least 3 years of free college i meant that this should apply for students with low income and also others who are struggling with earning money. My reason being these are the students who are actually in need of help to pay for college tuition, yet no changes are made to help out these students.

  • College Tuition

    Over the past 20 years college tuition has risen unbelievably high. We both know that most of the time students can not afford college tuition so they drop out. Many attempt to begin a business

    • Hey Ariana,

      I just wanted to say I liked how you voiced your opinion on college tuition. I do believe as much as you do on how it is a huge problem and impact on students especially for low income families. But I do have a question. You stated that students should at least be given a free 3 years of college. Are you referring to all students coming from all income background or certain students?

    • Hi Ariana,
      I really liked reading your post! As a high school senior I am a bit worried about the future and the costs of college. I don’t want to have my life be controlled by debt I racked up from learning. I want to be able to enjoy my life after college. We need to do something but I feel it will be too late to benefit myself and others in high school at the moment.

    • I too think that the cost of college tuition is a huge problem now days and that something needs to be done about it. I’m a senior in high school and I’m fortunate enough to come from a family with enough money to pay for my entire college tuition. I’m also an athlete and have received several offers to attend school for half tuition. And it’s truly a blessing because a lot of my friends’ parents aren’t going to be able to pay for their tuition so they have to work throughout college which is something I won’t have to do.

    • Hello Ariana,

      I can totally relate myself with the stress that college tuition can be, specially for us, seniors.
      This is a major issue and a stress cause for us, and that can affect our studies or even our majors…
      I am glad that we have some people working on it, in order to even reduce or cut it off.

    • I really enjoyed reading your post. I agree with you, I sure do not want to have to be worrying about debt both during and after college. I feel as if thinking about college debt while in college would put a lot of stress on students as well distract them from their studies.

    • Hey,
      College tuition seems to go up up and every year. I really enjoyed your post. More and more people need to realize that college isn’t cheap and debt is a killer. Its a shame that bright smart people can’t afford to go to school.

    • Dear Ariana,
      From your post that you have written I am aware that the price of college tuition is increasing. Many student get financial aid but that doesn’t cover all their expenses. Going off to college can be stressful and costy. To get a good education you must pay thousands of dollars to reach you goals. Many will not continue the journey and drop out. Is increasing the cost of tuition necessary or helpful at all? It can make the economy worse because less and less people will have a good education and may not reach their dreams of being teachers, doctors, nurses, veterinarians, etc. I agree with you that students should get some college years paid so they can earn money and go further if they desire. This would cut their stress and may even benefit the economy. Thank you for your project it was interesting learning more information and your perspective on college tuition.
