The Rise of Sugar Baby University

Sugar Baby University: Where beautiful, ambitious people graduate debt-free.  

That is the final line of a promotional video released by Seeking Arrangement.  What a strange and unconventional way to graduate from a college without debt!

Just a decade ago, it would be hard to image that this type of commercial ads could ever have its market.  However, in the U.S. the college tuition and fees are rising at a faster rate than the financial aid and family income, according to the College Board.  Many college kids are looking for ways to finance their education.

To many young Americans, a college education has gradually become an overpriced luxury, no more a necessity.   Nowadays, having a college degree and being debt-free seems to be an achievement to many.  That is why a business like “Sugary Baby University” can exist and thrive.
