College says 'no' to student loans

Not knowing any better, I amassed a sizeable chunk of student loan debt during my undergrad years. When I started my master's program, I had (thankfully) learned my lesson and paid for it outright. I wish someone had told me early on about debt, etc like a school in North Carolina that's decided it doesn't want it's students to graduate with debt.

Instead of letting their students go into super debt, they are raising $90 million to offer up as grants for the students. This is amazing. Hopefully it won't prove to be too much of a burden for the school and others will follow suit.
