A diploma used to be a badge of honor.

Oh my darling…….just who exactly do you wish would have warned you against attending an institution of higher learning? A college is not a trust fund, upon graduating from you shall receive your rightful inheritance. There is no golden ticket to the American Dream….it is a treasure to be claimed by the quick-witted, the brilliant, or the lucky. Now, channel that passion! That indignence! Perhaps counseling future grads to select a major that aligns well with their vision of their professional and social aspirations? And salve your interest-bearing wound with the knowledge that you are a college graduate, a noble achievement that can never, ever be taken away from you. Even by Sallie Mae.
