From The Resurgent: College Students Are Using Student Loans To Finance Spring Break Fun

I can remember my college days at the University of Georgia way back in…well, let’s just say it was a few years ago. It was easy to keep my education and the fun that went along with being in college separate.

It’s not enough these days to have a paper ticket underneath the windshield wiper of a violator’s car. First there was the boot, which rendered the offending vehicle immobile.
