I went to college in the early '70's. My purposes were to avoid the draft; (I was #15 in the draft lottery that year and it was promised that everyone under #179 was going to get a free (probably one-way) ticket to Viet Nam); get drunk, stoned and otherwise messed up; and screw as many chicks who were inclined.
Did all of that. Enjoyed it. Have no regrets.
Would I have borrowed money or taken my parents' money to do all that?

I went to an in-state “public ivy”, also in the early 70s. My annual tuition was $500. In-state tuition at the same university today is about $15,000 per year. Paying for college is a different, and vastly more expensive, proposition today than it was when you and I went.
