No. American kids nowadays have no balls and too lazy to actually work while going to school to pay for their tuition.
I only got the grant for my frosh year but the rest was taking part-time jobs. That included being a bodyguard/driver for an escort service, pizza delivery dude, dj for a strip club (ah, the stories), bartender etc. That’s why I never almost owed anything after graduation.

We have two kids in school, spending a little over 3K/month ten months a year; this fall will be the 4th year at it. We fight it, drive old trucks, no vacations, and no new toys because both the wife and I are afraid the kids won't have it as easy as we had it, no joke. We don't want them in any debt what so ever. I personally remember friends of mine paying what amounted to an extra house payment until they were 35 for their student loans.
The kids tell me almost every kid at school has their loans maxed out. Something don't seem right in our Country? Good thing was this year our daughter got an RA slot and also $400/semester Pell Grant, first time either of my kids got a penny.

Nealy ALL of us old-timers paid our own way, and did multiple part-time jobs, if necessary. When your parents couldn't afford to send you, you went into the Military, and came out and went on the GI Bill, and STILL worked part-time (or even full-time, and went to night classes).
Today, college kids take basket-weaving, diverstity training, sensitivity training, etc. just to fill up their schedule to minimum requirements, and then just go looking for the "hook-ups" and beer parties, while getting Taxpayer-funded loans and grants for their use....and now, we are to pick up the tab for their partying and time-wasting.....what a great Country!
