Why and How Millennial and GenZ Are Funding Their Education

Why and How Millennial and GenZ Are Funding Their Education

July 11, 2018

The first thing most millennials and GenZ students look for is a loan to help them with their college expenses. But loans are not always the best option to choose. According to a non-profit research group, an average American student graduates with roughly $29,000 in student loans. That’s a significant amount of money to repay over the course of your life.


But listen up all millennials and GenZ students; don’t saddle yourself with tons of debt even before you enter the ‘real world.’ This is not virtual reality or a video game where you get free points for playing through a level. Surviving through real life means you need real money and real sources.


You can easily find easier ways to fund your college education, with a little hard work and creativity on your part.
