Filling the Gap: How Students Pay for College

By | source: Oct 3rd, 2011

Over the weekend I heard some of the best news I could possibly hear. Arrested Development will be coming back for a final season to be capped off by a movie. Although this is completely irrelevant to today’s infographic I felt this was news that needed to be shared. Supposedly there is going to be a nine or ten part series allowing us to see what the characters have been up to for the past five years. Fox, who was stupid enough to take Arrested Development off the air and replace it with Family Guy reportedly will not be airing the series. It will air either on showtime or be broadcast on Netflix’s instant streaming, unfortunately it looks as though we will have to wait until some time in 2012 before this becomes a reality.

Now for business, today’s infographic Filling the Gap: How Students Pay for College details the ridiculous costs of college and how we manage to pay for them. As someone who is still in College I understand the woes of college expenses. Although my parents are both teachers and don’t have the biggest income and I have a sister attending college as well, the government believes my parents can pay a majority of our tuition no problem. Offering my sister and I very small unsubsidized loans and even smaller subsidized loans. As a result I have worked my whole college career to pay for all the extras needed in College.

If you’re a student hopefully today’s infographic will provide you with some information on filling the gap in your expenses. Hey after all if you need a little extra money you could just donate some organs, I’m sure they pay top dollar for those.[Private Student Loans]
