WAMC’s Sean McGuire has more on this issue.</p><p>Besides studying, it’s a time when students spend their savings on energy drinks from the gas station, a slice of pizza or order of wings for dinner, and for some, the alcohol they consume on weekends. But when it really comes down to it, fun money is nothing compared to the cost of tuition.</p> Mon, 06 May 2013 18:18:47 +0000 Sean McGuire 63984 at College Costs Worry Students "Back to School" by Mike Rose <p><em><a href=";tag=wamcnortheast-20&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=1595587861">Back to School: Why Everyone Deserves A Second Chance at Education</a><img alt="" border="0" height="1" src=";l=as2&amp;o=1&amp;a=1595587861" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" width="1"></em> is the first book to look at the schools that serve a growing population of “second-chancers,” exploring what higher education—in the fullest sense of the term—can offer our rapidly changing society.</p><p> Thu, 10 Jan 2013 16:35:00 +0000 Joe Donahue 55397 at "Back to School" by Mike Rose NY College Ending Free Tuition for Employees' Kids <p>Employees of the University of Rochester are losing a major benefit: free tuition for their children who attend the college.</p><p>Administrators at the private college tell the Democrat and Chronicle that starting in 2013, children of the university&#39;s faculty and staff will no longer get free tuition.</p><p>But they won&#39;t have to pay UR&#39;s tuition of nearly $43,000.
