I work at our state university and get a 50% tuition discount. I plan to work here…forever? Probably. I have made sure he knows that my expectation is, at this time, that he will go to school here unless he can find a way to go elsewhere for less money.
He’s only 9, so we’ve got time, but at the moment he’s ok with that plan, and told me he will live at home to save money. I don’t hide from him the fact that I have massive student loan debt, and will scream until I am hoarse to go with the cheapest option.
