Well, there is always the GI Bill to help with college expenses, but of course, that requires some prior planning, sacrifice, and effort.

Yeah, there are no real great college degree jobs, so that would be a way to pay the degree off as it collects dust on the shelf for many people today!

This is not a unique idea as youth sports do it all the time to raise money via advertising. Students in HS in the past have tried this but were told by the administration they could not.

Maybe the president will forgive this loan -- let you and I, (presuming are a tax payer) write it off.
