I am one of the thousands of students enrolled in the University of Louisiana at Monroe. Many of us that attend are on some type of grant and or scholarship.

Getting into school and having a wealthy profession has always been the main objective of many people attending college. For every some many years in Louisiana there are drops in college enrollment and a raise in the tuition fees. The state and college deans are trying make it harder and more expensive for people to attend college, and these things are only benefiting them. The only thing future college students are to do is raise that money and deal with the wrong doing of such a just system. In this process, the purpose of college is beginning to change into something negative. The state of Louisiana has one of the highest ratings in unemployment and healthcare needs yet they wonder why high graduates do not attend college, they simply do not have the money.
