Student loans: Love 'em or hate 'em? | MNN - Mother Nature Network: As high school grads prepare for college in
Today’s college student has several student loan options including public, private and parent loans. A student can easily gain access to tens of thousands of dollars in loan funding each year. While this might sound nice, some of these undergraduate students leave college with upwards of $50,000, $75,000 or even $100,000 in student loan debt. I can’t imagine being a new college graduate in my early 20s with $50,000 in student loan debt, especially in today’s tough job market.
