  •  My first year's tuition (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    My first year's tuition was $1000, taking a full load of classes. I lived at home and went to a state university. That was 1980. I was able to pay for my entire education with my own money, grants, and loans for which my payment was around $70 a month.

    A couple of years ago, I took one class at that same school and it was over $600.  Luckily for me, my company has tuition reimbursement.

    It's awful that people who want a college education can't get one without having to take out massive loans and start their careers in terrible debt.
