Study suggests large numbers of college students may not be able to provide basic needs while attending college, suggests despite current efforts, greater efforts are needed.

Not even sure what to think about this or the suggested solutions.

I remember a movement to go through college being homeless to save money a while back. Wonder if that is contributing to this...?

Given that the article focuses on a woman who, at 37, is a recovering drug and alcohol addict, lost her job and apartment, and ended up living in her car, I would have to say that it's just the typical college student's complete disregard for financial matters.

In the field of work that I am attributed to, some of the "employees" come into contact with college students who are in the throes of their youth, living in an overpriced apartment (designed to suck up that sweet, sweet student loans), driving their high-end cars, and partying three to seven days a week with, of course, their four room sharing members and a few hundred of their closest friends, and their friends.

I know tens of thousands go hungry on a daily basis. It's a sacrifice that's for sure.

I hear trade schools are begging for new people.

I've never eaten there but I don't think I could eat lobster knowing how they cook them T_T.

Ya know you can make high quality food cheap if you put the time into cooking it. Home made noodles are SOOOOOOOOOOOO good and cost next to nothing to make besides time. Get a little chicken and get güd at using spices then you can make feasts dirt cheap that people will be jealous of. My Dad does it and I do it with asian food and pasta.

What the fuck? Doesn't your disability prevent you from working? How the shit do you end up with less than $500 a month for that?

TECHNICALLY I get like 650,or 600, something but 200 or so is deducted for insurance which leaves me at 475
im considered 150 percent below poverty and still don't qualify for food stamps

Virginia is bitch

oh andmy moms income is considered mine too, prob why I don't qualify , we "make too much" legit what we have been told lol - she gets just a little more than me from disability, we both have the same heart condiitin but she has IV's for hers twice a week, among other shit that's wrong, too much to explain lol=

Jegus. I make more than that in a week and I work in a pretty low paying industry. I'm impressed you guys can even live off of that.

Hearing your disability financial problems makes me worried about my possible future with my SO who will likely be on disability.
