Student loans have gotten a bad rep in recent years, giving many people the opinion that they are a necessary evil. A college education is considered crucial yet the cost of attendance has skyrocked, and many students are taking out more loans than they can afford to repay on meager entry-level salaries.
In the fall of 2011, USA Today reported that outstanding student loans will exceed $1 trillion. Top Colleges Online created The Walking Debt to provide the public with educational average student loan debt information.
