Ok I am wondering how do these college kids pay thre rent? I know some have part time jobs and some have parents that can chip in but really.....how do they make it? Mommy and daddy have to be paying a lot. Is it student loans or what? I live on a campus and I think how are these kids able to afford like $500 rent, utilites (that are not covered in rent), personal needs, transportation, and shopping money?
I'm not understanding something.
I grew up by a very well know university and the kids always complained they never had any money but they had to have something. They all had name brand clothes, nice cars, no worries (some had part time jobs or piad interships), partying, and the newest gadgets. To everybody else they were rich..but they constanlty harp they are poor. What gives?

I lived in an apt with DH (bf at the time) when I was in college. I had FT classes and a PT job. DH worked FT. We both paid our apartment expenses with the money we earned. As for my schooling, my dad paid for all of it, which I VERY MUCH appreciated. I know a lot of classmates who graduated with loan debt.

My live in a home that I own- I foot the bills. They go to school, work PT. UC (University of CA) tuition is about what I paid for my kids to go to private HS. I've been paying for school for my kids since they were 3-It's one of the reasons I maintained my career-
