Is college still a good investment?

The rising cost of a college education has prompted many to question whether higher education still represents a good investment. Here’s what grads have to say.

According to Bankrate.com, 89 percent of college graduates say that their college education is a good investment. In general, nearly three quarters of all Americans consider college to be a worthwhile venture. Of this group, younger millennials (age 18-25) are the most supportive of investing in a college degree.

Unsurprisingly, 62 percent of Americans support making college tuition free for all.

Since college does come with a cost, students should be prepared to manage their finances wisely.
