College costs going to kill us students.
« on: March 16, 2011, 04:37:37 PM »

My professor went to a senate meeting for Penn State, and it seems the government wants to cut state appropriations by 52%! From what I understand the university will try to sustan their own economic failures for a few more years, but tuitions will most likely rise at least 30%. I think I'm not going to be able to complete my education if the cost goes up as much as it seems it will, which sucks. As it is, my campus in Berks is busy putting in a whole new building, and just last year they spent 12,000 dollars on moving trees. I remember reading some articles from the Mises Institute on how the next economic bubble is in post secondary education, guess this was coming.

My advice to you college age people.............

DONT FUCKING PAY THE PRICES THEY WANT!!!!


Then, when they got the hint and saw their classes empty for a few semesters, they would lower the cost of tuition down to market prices, instead of artificially inflated prices due to government covering whatever they demand.


Its pretty simple really.

People who attend state school should have an additional 3% tax applied to their earnings for life.

And, how is the book going?

So far I've only been going to the local campus, next year I will have to go up to the main campus which adds a shitload to the price. As it stands, there's a good 50% chance I won't be able to continue my education next year. I know too many people who had to drop out of college for money reasons, and still get crippled with the student loans.

Nope, no doctoral program. I dropped out after 3 semesters of general classes and bullshit. The book is slowly growing, I have a lot of info that needs to be fully typed up. The more stuff I find to put into it, the less likely it seems I'll have it done in my lifetime :)

learn a trade

^^THIS. My Bachelor's degree is basically a paperweight at this point. My Class D Security License is more marketable. Get certificates out the kazoo: CPR, First Aid etc.
