An entire class about to voluntarily bury themselves under mountains of debt while gaining nothing but theoretical knowledge and no job experience in an economy where job providers demand that experience most of all. If they are lucky enough to get a job with only a college degree when they graduate they will spend much of the rest of their lives trying to pay back the cost of that degree. Until our failed education system is drastically reformed I don't see the point of celebrating another class of wage-slaves.
With the cost of school and today's job market, unless you're getting a specialized degree and not something like liberal arts or political science, college just isn't worth it anymore. Kids are better off spending those four years acquiring work experience, building a resume, and avoiding going into debt at all costs.
