College Campuses See Rise In Homeless Students
USA Today
When Tina Giarla finished her first semester at Salem State University in Salem, Mass., she didn't worry about getting home during winter break or buying new winter clothes. She worried about where she would live for the next month, and where she would live once she returned to school. Giarla is one of thousands of homeless college students in the U.S. struggling to find a place to live. But the situation isn't new to her — Giarla has been an "unaccompanied youth" since her father died in 2007 and her mother was consistently in and out of jail. During her senior year, Giarla lived with her best friend and her family until graduation.

MoneyWatch
The number of U.S. students who borrow money for college continues to climb, while the number of graduates who are paying off these loans is slipping.

The average amount that the students borrowed has continued to spiral up, rising from $14,000 in 1993 to $24,700 in 2008.

U.S. Colleges See A Slowdown In Tuition Price Increases
USA Today
Average sticker prices at the nation's four-year public universities rose 2.9% this year, the smallest annual increase in more than three decades, suggesting that the steeper increases over the past few years "did not signal a new era of accelerating prices," says a report. Still, the smaller rates of increase this year — across public, private nonprofit and for-profit colleges — are tempered by recent declines in federal grant aid, it says.

Annual Rise In Cost of Public College Slows
The New York Times
Tuition and fees at public universities increased less than 3 percent this academic year, the smallest rise in three decades, according to the annual College Board reports on trends in pricing and aid. "This does not mean that college is suddenly more affordable, but it does mean that the rapid growth of recent years did not represent a 'new normal' for annual price increases," the report on pricing said. At the same time, the large increases in grant aid from 2009 to 2011 have slowed and have not kept pace with rising tuition. As a result, the amount students and families actually pay has risen as well.
