Pay Off Student Loans

Picture by Marya

Want to pay off your student loans? Brian McBride paid off $26,500 in student loan debt in two years. This Huffington Post article shows how he did it. Here's a Wall Street Journal article from "Yahoo! Finance" about people who threw a "loan-payoff party" after taking care of their student loan debts. Also, an online article detailing four ways to avoid excessive student loan debt recommends students work no more than 20 hours a week: "Research by the nonprofit thinktank Public Agenda shows that balancing school and too many hours of work is the No. 1 reason students drop out of college."
