Missouri College Drops Student Loans

    This isn’t all that surprising–the college has a rep for favoring work-study. Now, if, say, a state school makes the jump, that’ll be news.

    • And has had that reputation for decades, Tom.

        Yes. Out here in Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Kansas it has an outstanding reputation and is supported by many in the area. One of the work opportunities is the production of jams and (yes, I know to some, ‘ugh’) fruitcake. They make fine holiday gifts and support a most worthy organization.

  • That is great news. I wish more schools would take that approach.

    I’d like to point out the best examples of debt free schooling (the students actually get paid to attend) that prepares them for future work: the Military Academies. I realize this is a different set-up than Hard-Work U, but I love that some schools are finding real world solutions to helping people improve their education, work skills and potential. I haven’t met anyone from that school, but I would put that in the plus side if I were looking for a new hire.

    I sometimes wonder if some of the large corporations would be wise to set up undergraduate schools to feed their needs.
