Penn State #3 in Student Debt Ranking

We all know college is expensive, but just how expensive is Penn State? According to a Gawker article highlighting a study by the Education Department, Penn State ranks third in student debt for non-profit schools.

Penn State is certainly not the only public school (as may be expected from its status as most costly public university) or even the only Big Ten school. Ohio State, Michigan State, Minnesota, and Purdue all made the list along with state schools in Arizona, Texas, and New Jersey.

The logical assumption here is that big schools have more students, which means they have more student debt–not necessarily that they have poor student aid or a lack of scholarships. Still, in this economy and job market, it’s something for next year’s freshman to think about.

Kiwi Fro-Yo Comes to Penn State

The Kiwi Yogurt chain is opening its newest store right here in State College, next to the Student Book Store at 324 E. College Ave, this February (no word yet on exact date). Kiwi is a Maine Line, Pa.-based, family-owned company founded in 2008 set on providing “the ultimate dessert experience.”

And it is quite the experience. When you walk in, there is – prepare yourselves – a wall of frozen yogurt options. You get to walk up to this beautiful wall and vend yourself as many flavors as you like.
