An Investment in Your Future
No one likes borrowing money, and debt should never be considered lightly. But when it makes a college education possible, taking out low-interest student loans could be the smartest decision you'll ever make.
Here's why. Research shows that college graduates earn approximately $1.2 million more in lifetime income than those with only a high school diploma. They also have lower unemployment rates and are generally healthier and happier. That's a pretty good return on a few years of student loan repayment.
Through good times and bad, the value of education has remained high—a proven investment that's likely to pay off exponentially over the course of your life. So even if it take some loans to help pay for it, it's a choice you'll probably never regret.
