In these days, housing problems are one of the worst problems, not only for Seattle Central students, but for all college students in the United States. According to homeguides.sfgate.com, students suffer from getting houses or apartments in terms of cost and space. Apartments near and around our school are especially more expensive than other schools. Seattle central students are also confronting more severe problems now that housing costs are increasing. Housing costs are cheaper if apartments are a little further from Seattle Central.
In the meantime, colleges in the U.S have only become more expensive each year, and it’s greatly affecting graduating high school students since each student has to find a way to pay for his or her college tuition. The college graduates are then affected because they have to pay for the outrageous debt

In the article, “Freedom to Fail? The Board’s Role in Reducing College Dropout Rates.” by Stan Jones says, “ To retain students, boards should consider an approach to governance that reduces the time it takes for a student to graduate, lessens the number of choices, and provides more predictability and structure.”(Jones, Stan 20-23) At least the Boards and Government is taking charge of this issue because college dropout increasing and that can affect the future of this country. Although going to college in the United States is a high demand, there are many students who drop out in their first year school due to, high tuition, inadequate academic preparations and how their raised. One of the main reasons why students drop out is because of how they are raised. Parenthood is very important in a child’s life.
Sometimes, some of these students have to leave with their education partially finished, leaving them with crushing debts. It is important to find the means to prevent these students that are victimized by skyrocketing tuitions from dropping out, and encourage all incoming high school seniors to continue their education. The reality is that the rise in college tuition is no longer affordable for the average American household. Parents cannot afford to pay for their children’s tuitions on their incomes and students are very often forced to enroll part time in order to have the time to get a job to pay for college. This very often causes a decrease in these students GPA and consequently increases the number of dropouts in the long run.
Plus, there are hundreds and even thousands of students living at the universities. That cannot be cheap. It has been said that if we want to attend an air conditioned classroom with high tech computers and be able to turn on the lights in our dorm rooms then we need to suck it up and stop complaining about the price. But still the high cost of tuition is harming the education of young people, therefore the government should decrease the price of tuition or increase the percentage of financial aid given to each school for the applicants. One reason why the cost of tuition should be lowered is because of working low income families.
Its sad the amount of students not going to collage based on tuition in the United States. Anymore, 47% of junior high and high school student’s parents feel they can't afford college for their kids anymore with the cost of tuition and it still increasing. I feel college tuition is way too high in the United States for most families in today's economy. Over half of the students going into college show some concern with how to pay for college. The amount of college graduate debt is rapidly increasing.
What are the challenges college students are facing today? Students are under a lot of pressure these days because of budget cuts in education, rising tuition costs, dwindling Federal Student Loans, hard to obtain private student loans, and to make matters worse, high unemployment graduate numbers. Today's college students are having to change their anticipated day of graduation, because California's educational system has been hit with a massive budget crisis. This set back has led to several campuses having to cut teachers salaries and hours, resulting in some classes being terminated. Most campuses have reduced student enrollment to compensate for these cuts, thus making it harder for students to enroll for classes in order to complete their educational goals.
"Young, almost broke, and attending college". Today 's public and private colleges and universities contain very high tuitions that lead to students with decades of debt. People recognize the need for education farther than high school to make a life-sustaining wage, but many students are compelled to choose work over school. Numberless of students choose work over college because the rise of college tuition is making it harder and harder for students of lower class or low income to obtain the education they want and need. Although, other students adjust their class schedules to their work schedule, at the end they wind up withdrawing from college.
Student loan debt has been on the rise over the years. As students are on their way to college, many are turning down attending huge universities because of the hefty price tag. This is an issue because of the high cost of tuition, making it a social problem, a problem that is affecting more than one person, that are is created by social conditions and that can be changed if we take action because students are not able to pursue their dreams, students tend to drop out, and many are stressed. If we were to make college more affordable, students would be able to get a quality education and pay it off on a good amount of time. There are many ways schools are able to lower the cost of student debt as it has risen and is one of the biggest issues
