My parents offered to pay for my first semester. It was a gesture delivered with love, excitement and moderation. But, I was told any education beyond the first semester would be my responsibility. Scholarships and Pell Grants are just two ways kids can handle their education themselves. The semester you pay for is plenty of time to find and earn scholarships. Also, with pricey tuition and living costs, working while in school is necessary.
