There are many factors that contribute as to why students are in need for student loans and credit cards. One important factor is school. It's becoming expensive and in a recent study done by the College Board, it is stated that the escalating cost of school has risen its highest than in all the years since they started recording the cost of education. Because attending school isn't an option, a lot of students look toward student loans and opening credit cards to help pay off their tuition, books, and living expenses. An article on student loans on USNews.com states that, “Although the federal government will hand out billions of dollars more in college grants in 2011 and 2012 than ever before, the nation's financial aid programs as a whole are not keeping up with rising tuition, government officials and financial aid analysts say”.

Intro to Research Writing, 12:00 22 February 2013 Single Source Essay In his essay The College Dropout Boom, Dave Leonhardt describes “one of the largest and fastest-growing groups of young adults in America” (266); college dropouts. His implied thesis for this essay is that even though student body populations are becoming more diverse in terms of both ethnic background and social class, there is a large difference in the number of college graduates from higher-income families (upper middle-class and above) and lower-income families. Leonhardt believes that today more than ever before in our nation, high school graduates from lower-income families have the opportunity to attend college, but these students for various reasons are not seeing college through to graduation. He believes that this is a major issue for modern society, and it is being overlooked. Although it seems that we are making great strides in education with increased admissions for college students in diverse social, income and ethnic groups, that because these students are not getting degrees the gap between rich and poor continues to increase, and these achievements in education are not as valid as they seem.

Students may take this year-long break from school to work to save up enough money for college, intern or volunteer for the career they want to pursue, or travel the world. This break from school is called a Gap Year. This Gap Year program originated from the United Kingdom, and is becoming more and more popular in the United States. The Vice President of Enrollment at Colorado College, Mark Hatch, states that the number of students that have been accepted to Colorado College who choose to take a Gap Year ranges from 24 to 40 students out of a class of 500 (Simpson). This number continues to rise as the Gap Year Program gains recognition as an acceptable, temporary alternative to college.
Ashley Williams Prof. Jenkins-Crowe Rhetorical Analysis English 1020 September 26, 2012 College; Decisions, Decisions In the essay “Is College for Everyone?” by Pharinet, he states that everyone doesn’t have to go to college to obtain a well-paying job.

What are you going to be? All these questions are extremely daunting and often stress students out. Also, with the price of college so high many students take on a job during high school which only adds to the stress.

Time is so fleeting in this day and age.
