College is the new high school—this is a truism for those high school students who are seeking to enter or remain in the middle-class. Indeed, a college degree has become the golden ticket, but for those who need to take out student loans or receive other financial aid to make college attendance feasible, that ticket has been getting more and more expensive over the years.
