In Friday College Town Hall, we post a question about college, and you leave an answer in the comment field.

Today’s question is inspired from Lynn O’Shaughnessy’s recent blog:

Why is it that students act as if college is a time of extended adolescence instead of a time for learning real-life skills for careers and adulthood?

Is there a healthy balance to hit? What needs to change in the college experience?

Today’s question:

Total outstanding student debt has passed $1 trillion, more than the nation’s credit card debt.

Do you think students are fully aware of the scale of debt they’ll accrue paying for college before they’re already standing knee deep in it?

Today’s question:

Lynn O’Shaughnessy of The College Solution recently blogged about these statistics:

According to an annual UCLA survey of freshman, only 15.5% of freshman attend schools more than 500 miles away. Nationwide, 73% of students attend their own state schools.

Should more students try looking for colleges outside of their states? Do the advantages of staying in-state outweigh the advantages of  going out of state?
