We live in a world that demands you have an education. It doesn’t matter that you won’t utilize half of what you learned in college, will most likely graduate with a ridiculous amount of debt only to land in a job that pays pennies or do not wish to go to school, anyway. You pretty much have to attend a post-secondary institution of some sort for a small chance at success.

But despite the many drawbacks to obtaining a degree, the rewards are plentiful, and according to Scholarship Owl, you can attend an institution of higher learning without breaking the bank.

In fact, the educational resource site argues that some of the most affordable institutions offer the best curricula.
