Finals week is coming up! It’s that time where we rejoice in relief and look forward to bearing the weight of another semester’s hefty student loan bill.
Sometimes it’s hard to see through the cracks of the towering pile of debt accumulated as a college student. It’s no wonder why the radiance of the word “free” shines through like a beacon of hope.
“Free college” is really a question of redistribution of the bill. Would you rather have a “free” education and tackle the bill later in life as a taxpayer? Or would you rather keep your own money and never have to indirectly pick up someone else’s tab? These are the questions we must ask ourselves.
