Student Bodies


    If you or someone you know is starting university at this time, be sure they are majoring in a subject that will earn them money when they graduate. The cost of education is very high these days - many students taking student loans or parent sacrificing a lot to help the children. I know that young people are very much into creative arts such as art history, film and drama, writing, many of the liberal arts, and communications. There has to be an end-game with one's major. We are not living in the old days when you can graduate without a career and debts to be repaid. This is especially hard for those with emotional problems who would like to live their lives as free spirits ... traveling, learning, and somehow managing to survive.
