What is the strangest way to raise money for college, that you've either done or heard of?
Well maybe not strange but I knew a guy who paid for his college with bottle returns. This was back in the mid 1980s where tuition was about 2,000 a year for a state school
Oh, cool! I wonder how many bottles it took for him to get his tuition money? It would be neat to be able to do a comparison of what it took in the 1980's compared to how many bottles you would need today.
My daughter's tuition for a SUNY (state college) was about 16000 a year, that is with room and board
I wouldn't conclude that it is indeed the strangest way to raise money for college; yet it is perhaps creative,ingenious, despicable and/or awful.
Simply: (1) determine the college you wish to attend. (2) begin a relationship with a tenured professor from the college. (3) Marry the professor.
Since most tenured professors are provided with free tuition for their dependents and your housing residence would also be provided for; you will have indeed provided for your college education. Another significant spinoff would be reduced textbook costs and insider knowledge potential...
I can definitely agree with your first paragraph! Definitely not the most conventional way to pay for college. Thank you for the laugh, god knows I needed it!
You are most welcome, from a professor who married before I was employed as a professor...
