    I was in the same boat. My parents couldn't afford to help out on the cost of going to college, so I worked summers waiting tables in the Hamptons. Made enough money to have a blast living on the beach with a legal drinking age of 18, and to pay my own way through four years of undergraduate school. Fortunately got a full ride (tuition and living expenses) that covered all five years of grad school.

    Unfortunately, college has become so expensive you’d have to work as a cardiologist in the Hamptons all summer to pay for it now!

    Richmond forward Tyler Burton is in the portal, and Providence and UConn are named as 2 of 8 leading contenders.
    Wish we were on this guy. Might be a perfect replacement for Colby.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    Remember when you *could* pay for an in-state college degree while working a part-time job?

    My how things have changed! The in-state schools were almost looked down upon at one time. Now, because they are more affordable, only the very top students stand a chance of getting into them.
