Are you, or is someone you know, hoping to get a college education?

How do you plan to finance it?

For the best effect, please be sure and watch this video recording of a news report from RUSSIA TODAY in "FULL SCREEN" mode.

This video recording was posted at the YOU TUBE web site on Sunday 12 June 2011 by RUSSIA TODAY.

"A solid college education used to be the key to getting a great job in America and was a core component of the American dream.

However, the times have changed.

With the recession, the number of highly educated unemployed individuals has skyrocketed.

An education has become more of a financial burden than a stepping stone into the workforce." 

However, regardless of any financial consideration, gaining knowledge brings growth, power, progression, and virtue, whereas mere ignorance is condemned as a sinful and slothful vice.

Within the sacred scriptures of The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints, we are counseled that, "The glory of God is intelligence, or, in other words, light and truth", and also, "And if a person gains more knowledge and intelligence in this life through his diligence and obedience than another, he will have so much the advantage in the world to come".

Even if a formal university education is financially impractical in our contemporary market, we still have the use of good ol' fashioned individual initiative, creativity, books, libraries, the computer Internet, and/or gleaning nuggets of knowledge from peer counsel.
