Westwood College Charts Student Budgets
Westwood College, based in Denver, Colorado, with 17 campuses and online classes (think “University of Phoenix”), has this graphic on their website that details student spending. Other than the huge cost they say students spend getting ready for school in a given year (10.5 billion dollars), the most interesting stat, to us at OS anyway, was that the average college student had 2000 dollars in credit card debt.
