This month for many, is very difficult as our young ones head off to college for the very first time. For me, leaving my youngest, daughter, at college her freshman year was one of the hardest things I had ever done as a parent.
The fall of 2020 2.17 million freshman started college which was down 13% (327,513 fewer students) from the 2.50 million freshman that began college in the fall of 2019 (source: National Student Clearinghouse).
It will be interesting to learn how many first-year students start college this year. If you are trying to figure out how to fund college expenses, please ask us.
