While school is undoubtedly expensive, we cannot help but wonder: is this really a necessary route? These students must think so. Do we have the right to judge or determine what’s chauvinistic versus progressive? Whatever your opinion may be, it’s clear that the rising rates show students desperately turning to other money-making methods to pay for school that likely would not have if the costs had remained stagnant. Now, that’s something we absolutely do have the right to judge. Even though a select few would have been interested in that route no matter what the cost of school, we’re willing to wager that many students, given other viable options would opt out of “sugar” relationships. Students, please note you do have other viable options! Fastweb, for one, is a great resource for finding scholarships, learning about managing your money and applying for financial aid. So, before you or any of your friends commit to something you may regret in the future, do yourself a favor and research. There are always more options out there than you think. Note: Everyone's entitled to an opinion. Although Fastweb doesn't condone the choices made by students that have turned to these sites, it is an issue for some students, especially when they're being targeted, and that's enough cause for awareness.
What do you think about students turning to these sites as a way to pay for school?
