College cost have risen rapidly in the U.S over the last several years, even those with the intitiative to save for college may find it overwhelming. One option a student may want to try is going to a community college for the first two years. Generally, a community college is much less expensive, any many of thes schools are building residence halls for a more traditional like experience.

I was absolutely baffled that my parents didn't save for my college education. I received money each month from the Army as a dependent and I thought they had been socking away the "free money." Nope! That meant we took out loans to pay for school after my scholarships covered a meager amount of the cost. We want to open a 529 for our kids so they can at least have cash saved up for school to avoid debt.
