Spring Break = Spring Debt
It is spring break time for many colleges. And time for reports about college students funding their tropical beach weekends thanks to student debt. I know I did this, and lived to regret it.
Anyone else take out more in student loans to help finance a larger lifestyle than necessary?

I saw something about this. About 30% of those with student loans take out extra for spring break. But, of course, money is fungible. So any student taking out loans and spending money on a debauchous weekend is in effect borrowing extra for the experience.
Worse, for most, that spoiled sense of entitlement does not even vanish after they graduate.

I saw one estimate that 30% of spring breakers take on extra loans for their vacation. Astounding. A vacation you get to pay off over the next 30 years. Hardly seems worth it. Even if you come back and label your break as "EPIC".

Those loans are subsidized. So its totally cool.

I'm guessing a lot of people are already anticipating the forthcoming debt forgiveness. So why bother being judicious with the borrowing.

Why is getting drunk and hooking up with strangers and accepted part of a college rite of passage anyway?
