College price right?

Print Article

The price of college has tripled over the past decades. Is the price right for college students? Next year, I plan to attend college, but the greatest barrier is cost. The problem I see is it is difficult transitioning from free education in high school to college where costs are out of control. For a year of college at Washington State University costs were around $27,249 and for the four years a studentís debt could reach $108,996. Thatís a life-changing burden for our generation just to continue our schooling. Some of us students want to continue our schooling, but this might just be a roadblock we cannot conquer. Make a move by writing to your state legislator, boycotting college, or any other way in order to help your future as well as others.
