Well, I am planning to send my baby off to college in a few weeks and while surfing around the web today (do we still say that?) I came across the TIME Magazine list of the state colleges with the highest tuition increases. Lo and behold, there was my son’s new university home listed at No. 4!!
ASU had a 44% tuition rate increase in the last two years!!! It is tied with the University of Georgia (ironically another college to which he applied but was not accepted).
What have I done?? He received one scholarship, but the rest of the tuition is going to be covered by student loans, work study and my selling aluminum cans for recycling.
But, the bright side is… I am going to lose weight and be a lot slimmer and trimmer by 2016, when he graduates. That is because, with him at ASU and his brother here at MATC, I don’t plan to eat for the next 4 years.
I’ll let you know how that goes… stay tuned!
