In the National Achievement Scholarship Program, the local honorees are Vanguard High senior Faith Obimdike, an achievement ﬁnalist; and West Port High senior Ebony Blaize, a national achievement scholar. The National Achievement Scholarship Program was launched in 1964 to recognize the nation’s outstanding black high school students. They compete for 800 college scholarships worth $2.6 million. Black students may enter both the National Achievement Program and the National Merit Program by taking the PSAT and the qualifying test and meeting other requirements. The two annual programs are conducted concurrently but are operated and funded separately. A student’s standing is determined independently in each program. Black students can be recognized as scholars in both programs but can receive only one monetary award. Of the more than 160,000 students who enter the National Achievement Program each year, about 4,700 are honored as the top college candidates. About 1,600 are then named semiﬁnalists. In late January, about 1,300 semiﬁnalists are named ﬁnalists and become eligible for scholarships. In February, 800 ﬁnalists are selected to receive one of two types of achievement scholarships: the National Achievement $2,500 Scholarships and the corporate-sponsored scholarships. Blaize will attend Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and plans to major in chemical and biomolecular engineering, with a focus in bioengineering. “With this degree I hope to work in the genetics ﬁeld developing techniques and technologies that would help detect, prevent, and/or counteract genetics mutations that cause genetics disorders,” she noted. “However, I do not know if I would like to accomplish these goals as a doctor in a research hospital or as an engineer in a lab.” Blaize, who has weighted grade point average of 4.67, has been involved in many activities while at West Port. She is the euphonium section leader and the ﬁrst lieutenant of the West Port High School Wolf Pack Band. She also is a member of Mu Alpha Theta and Science National Honors Society. “I am also a Take Stock in Children student ambassador,” she noted. “This past summer I was given the opportunity to conduct research under the guidance of Curtis Taylor in the Mechanical and Aeronautical Department at the University of Florida. It was a very enlightening experience and I plan to continue to do research, but in the genetics ﬁeld, in college.” Obimdike plans to attend the University of Florida, with plans of becoming a cardiologist. “I was born and raised in West Africa, as were my parents,” she said. “I moved to Florida when I was 11 years old, ﬁnishing elementary school here and going to Howard Middle School.” Obimdike has been involved in the Pink Ladies Service Club for all four years of high school, which “taught me more than just how to get community service hours; it has taught me leadership and social skills, as well.” Obimdike also is a three-year member of the Spanish Club and a member of the National Honor Society. “Volunteering is very important to me, which is why in addition to being an avid member of the Pink Ladies Service Club, I tutor underclassmen in Spanish three times a week and spend my Friday mornings before school at Oakcrest Elementary mentoring a third-grader, whom I have gotten to know very well,” she noted. Obimdike has volunteered at church since the seventh grade, looking after pre-school children. “I want my love of volunteering and helping others to transcend into the ﬁeld in which I work; my goal is not to merely ﬁx people, but to help them feel better and live more fulﬁlled lives,” she said. Obimdike also has been on Vanguard’s varsity tennis team all four years. www.ocala.com Hats Off WAY TO GO!

Staff report College is still a good investment bet By Catherine Rampell The Washington Post A W hat do high school graduates do once they get their diplomas? The federal government has the answer. Each year, the Bureau of Labor Statistics studies people ages 16 to 24 who graduate from high school between January and October. In 2013, there were 3 million such young people. Here’s the breakdown as of October 2013: ■ 65.9 percent were enrolled in colleges or universities. That includes 68.4 percent of women and 63.5 percent of men. ■ The college enrollment was 79.1 percent for Asians, 67.1 percent for whites, 59.3 percent for blacks and 59.9 percent for Hispanics. ■ Of those enrolled in college, 92.8 percent were full-time students and 34.1 percent were working or looking for work. ■ Of those enrolled in four-year schools, 27.8 percent were working or looking for work. For those enrolled in two-year schools, it was 45.2 percent. Labor Department report released this month ﬁnds that the share of young people enrolled in college by the October after they graduate from high school has tumbled in the past few years. From a high of 70.1 percent in 2009, it was down to 65.9 percent in 2013. Other reports have found similar declines in enrollment for the entire universe of college students, not just those coming directly out of high school. No doubt many pundits will celebrate this news. The previous swells in postsecondary enrollment, driven partly by the lackluster job market, brought frequent calls of a “college bubble.” Just as the government subsidized too much homeownership, the argument goes, it’s also been subsidizing too much higher education. After all, freshmen land on college campuses bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, expecting to enrich their minds and, eventually (post-degree), their bank accounts. Instead, they graduate ﬁnancially crippled by loan debts. Many can’t ﬁnd jobs, or they ﬁnd jobs that don’t require a bachelor’s degree. But here’s why college is still worth it, and still worth subsidizing. Even though unemployment rates for young college grads seem high — especially in the ﬁrst few months after graduation — they’re still much lower than they are for people without degrees. According to Labor Depart- ment data, the unemployment rate for Americans ages 20 to 29 who have a bachelor’s degree was 5.8 percent in 2013. In that same age group, among people with no education beyond a high school diploma, it was 14 percent. And for those who do ﬁnd work, the wage premium for higher education has grown over time. In 1979, among full-time workers of all ages, the median college graduate earned 38 percent more than did the median high school graduate; today the college-educated worker earns about 82 percent more. College is, as the Hamilton Project has pointed out, one of the best possible investments you can make, outperforming stocks, gold, long-term Treasurys, AAA corporate bonds and housing. That’s true for both a four-year degree and even more so for an associate’s degree. A college degree is certainly no guarantee of ﬁnancial success, but it is nearly a prerequisite for moving up the income ladder if you’re poor. Of Americans born into families in the bottom income quintile, almost half who didn’t get a college degree remained stuck in the poorest income quintile as adults; the same was true for just 10 percent of Americans born poor who then got a college degree, Pew’s Economic Mobility Project found in 2012. As for why higher ed should be subsidized: There are large, positive spillover effects from having a more educated workforce beyond the gains that accrue to the degree-holder. In 1979, the median college graduate earned 38 percent more than did the median high school graduate; today the college-educated worker earns about 82 percent more. Research has found that having a higher concentration of college graduates in a local economy increases the wages of not only the college grads themselves but also those without bachelor’s degrees. (Which is why it’s especially shortsighted for states to cut higher education funds, which forces schools to raise tuition and price out the more marginal matriculants.) One of the silver linings of the ﬁnancial crisis might be that the lousy job market drove many people into, or back into, college to upgrade their skills. They are re-emerging more skilled and better equipped to help expand a 21st-century economy, once it fully heals — just as the surge in college-going enabled by the GI Bill helped grease the economy during the postwar boom. That said, critics are right that not everyone is using their college-going years wisely or investing in the most lucrative skills. The usual punchline is that too many people are majoring in women’s studies or English. These are not the biggest sources of growth, though; in fact, “area, ethnic, cultural, gender and group studies” represented less than 1 percent of bachelor’s degrees awarded in 1970-71 and 2011-12, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. The share of English majors has shrunk over the past 40 years, both as a percentage of all newly awarded bachelor’s degrees and in raw numbers. Instead, the undergraduate disciplines with the most growth, in raw numbers, are business, the health professions and communication/ journalism. Yup, you read that right: Communication/journalism degrees now represent almost 1 in 20 of all newly awarded bachelor’s degrees (because there’s so much growth in media jobs?). Meanwhile, the share majoring in engineering, math and the physical sciences has fallen. Public policy could do much more to nudge students into disciplines that produce bigger private and public economic returns, including better career counseling or tuition discounts in ﬁelds where there are expected skill shortages. But ﬁrst things ﬁrst: We need to stop playing down what a great investment college is for most Americans. MTI provides students hands-on technical training By Andy Fillmore Correspondent J ames Roberts was struggling in traditional high school. He is dyslexic and was about to drop out. Now Roberts, 19, is a young man with a dream and direction. He transferred to Marion Technical Institute for his junior year and is set to graduate. “I may open my own restaurant someday,” said Roberts, who has made the honor roll at MTI’s Culinary Arts program and is a part-time chef at Hilton Ocala, working 32 hours a week in a student intern program that could lead to a full-time position after graduation. Roberts’ mother, Lori, said her son’s turnaround at MTI has been dramatic; in fact, her daughter, Katheryne, 16, may attend MTI, as well. “The teachers and staff at MTI are so dedicated and the students are calm. There doesn’t seem to be any discipline problem. James loves it, and he knows what he wants to do in life,” Lori Roberts said. Hilton Ocala general manager Jeff Bailey said the MTI Culinary Arts students do a “fantastic job” at his operation and “deﬁnitely have a leg up” over other high school graduates when ﬁrst entering the workplace. MTI, which opened in 2005, admits juniors and seniors from all seven Marion County high schools. The school provides a high school diploma and focused “hands-on” technical training in the ﬁelds of automotive; building sciences, including framing, electrical and geotechnical; culinary arts and baking; information technology; law and government; and robotics, automation and design. “The technical training and certiﬁcations available through seven technical academies here at MTI are the best-kept secret in the county,” said John Conway, student intern coordinator. Each academy has a classroom and a “real world” lab where students ﬁx vehicle brakes and electrical systems, BRUCE ACKERMAN/STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER James Roberts, 19, prepares a cannoli in the kitchen at the Culinary Arts program at Marion Technical Institute on Southeast Fort King Street in Ocala. Roberts was struggling in traditional high school, but he transferred to MTI for the Culinary Arts program and is set to graduate at the end of this month. prepare meals, design Web pages, engineer and make components on a 3-D printer, and conduct mock trials. “If the students make a mistake here, we have time to correct it. That way they are better prepared for the real world. We work very close with our student body of about 300; if one starts to drift, we are right there to help,” Conway said. Conway estimated 98 percent of MTI students receive their diplomas, and likely half of the school’s seniors have lined up an industry-related job prior to graduation. Conway works closely with area businesses and the Ocala/Marion County Chamber & Economic Partnership. Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) and the Manufacture’s Standard Skills Council (MSSC) certiﬁcation are among those available through MTI. Many employers require these certiﬁcations and seek candidates who have them. Avery Jones, 18, a senior in the Automotive Academy at MTI, has earned his ASE certiﬁcation and works about 36 hours a week at Ford of Ocala. His base school is Vanguard High. Jones is in instructor C.J. Attenhofer’s class of about 50 students and works hands on in the school’s adjacent multi-bay garage. Classes in brakes, electrical, engine performance, and steering and suspension are offered. Jones’ career goal: become a master diesel mechanic. His father, Doug, said he’s impressed with the real-world experience his son is getting at MTI and is happy he has his foot in the door with a job at Ford of Ocala. Conway said the ASE certiﬁcation will be a big help with employers. “Last year, two students earned ASE certiﬁcations, and this year we expect students will earn at least 10 ASE certiﬁcations,” Conway wrote in an email. He indicated 38 students in the Automotive Academy passed the ASE student certiﬁcation. “It show companies like Ford the student is capable of learning, and [it] helps the student with conﬁdence. Avery could look at almost any employer as a diesel mechanic and get a wage like $25 to $30 an hour,” Conway said. Steven Hollosi, vice president and general manager of Ford of Ocala, said his company has been involved with the Automobile Academy at MTI since the school opened. “We have had dozens of MTI interns since then. They do an excellent job,” he said. “MTI students can develop a marketable skill in their passion ... and they can develop ‘soft’ [or interpersonal] skills. These students get an edge, and we can be instrumental in helping them get real life experience,” Hollosi said. “Ford of Ocala has hired about 30 former MTI students for full-time employment after graduation. The community beneﬁts when these talented people stay in Marion County,” he added. John King, director of Marion County Fleet Services, also is a fan. He says the internship program partnership between his department and MTI “provides an invaluable opportunity for students in MTI’s automotive program to receive enhanced training.” “The students are able to experience a practical application of skills key in the automotive industry. By the time students leave our program, they’ve worked on everything with wheels,” King wrote in an email. He continued: “Students who have participated in the program showed dedication and a commitment to learning; three of the students who interned with us passed the nationally recognized Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certiﬁcation test and were subsequently employed as technicians at local dealerships.” Nick Lowry, 16, was homeschooled from seventh grade until his entry into MTI as a senior this school year. He is enrolled in the Information Technology Academy and Engineering (Robotics, Automation and Design) Academy. Nick is certiﬁed in three Microsoft Ofﬁce programs and in engineering-related programs. Nick, who has an interest in classical music, especially Verdi, plans to attend Tallahassee Community College and then transfer to Florida State University. Nick’s mother said the MTI experience has been good for him and she is pleased that, as a homeschooled student, he was able to enter MTI as part of the public school system and succeed. “Nick accelerated in school so fast; the challenge was to keep him challenged. At MTI he’s almost self-instructed, which is what we wanted to do with his homeschooling,” she said. Instructor Kim Burt, a 20-year-plus veteran of the U.S. Post Ofﬁce IT Department, heads up the MTI IT Academy. “We make ﬁeld trips to local concerns like the hospitals, Ocala Police Department and the Institute for Human & Machine Cognition. We have 34 in the IT class and 16 working in industryrelated jobs such as Kmart distribution and ARC,” Burt said. Dale Toney, production design and technology instructor, said the two-year Manufacturing Skills Standards Council program, which includes certiﬁcation in safety, quality, manufacturing awareness and product processing, provides skills that impress employers. Two students in Toney’s class of about 30 students last year earned the MSSC patch. “Students can earn a certiﬁcation other workers age 50 may have to get,” said Toney, who meets regularly with an advisory council of local manufacturing ﬁrms. Conway said several students passed the MSSC certiﬁcation and got jobs with Lockheed Martin. “Last year two students passed all four (tests) in safety, quality, maintenance and manufacturing processes. This year we expect to have a total of seven pass all four,” Conway wrote in an email. Tom Falanga, Lockheed Martin facilities and environmental, safety and health senior manager, praised MTI and the students. “Lockheed Martin’s Ocala facility has hired many MTI graduates over the last few years, more than 25 of them. Their training and Manufacturing Skills Standards Council certiﬁcation provides them with a working knowledge of the manufacturing environment.” Falanga wrote in an email. “MTI stresses the importance of attitude and professionalism to students. These attributes combined with the education makes them very attractive employee candidates.” Falanga wrote. www.ocala.com GRADUATION SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2014 | OCALA STAR-BANNER | 5G Employment in STEM-related ﬁelds expected to grow Experts say there will be future jobs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. By Jim Ross Managing editor STEM EMPLOYMENT GROWTH Occupation Employment growth 2012 2022 employment employment S TEM has been the hot acronym in education for many years. The humanities? The social sciences? Those are nice, but experts say high school graduates who are heading to college — and who hope to ﬁnd a fertile job market in four years — would be well served to at least consider majors that fall under the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics umbrella. A new federal report backs up that conventional wisdom. According to the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in STEM-related occupations will grow about 13 percent between 2012 and 2022 — outpacing the 11 percent growth rate expected for all occupations during that 10-year span. Experts predict software development will enjoy the greatest number of job openings (218,500) between 2012 and 2022, followed by computer system analysis (209,600) and computer user support (196,900). Job openings are deﬁned as a combination of new jobs and the need to replace departing workers already in that ﬁeld. The median annual wage for software development is $92,660, according to the most recent data. The bureau predicts that the fastest-growing STEM Information security analysts Operation research analysts Statisticians Biomedical engineers Actuaries Petroleum engineers 37% 75,100 102,500 27% 27% 27% 26% 26% 73,200 27,600 19,400 24,300 38,500 92,700 34,900 24,600 30,600 48,400 FASTEST-GROWING STEM OCCUPATIONS Occupation Job openings Current 2012-22 employment 2022 employment BRUCE ACKERMAN/STAFF PHOTOGRAPHER/FILE Peggy Brookins, director of EMIT at Forest High School, talks to her students about one of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Bomb Squad’s robots, called the F6-A, during a 2012 demonstration at the school.

The next fastest-growing occupation should be operations research analysis, with a 27 percent increase (73,200 to 92,700) and a $74,630 annual wage, the study said. retiring. She mentioned the Median annual wage* biomedical ﬁeld, computer science, nanotechnology, $132,320 renewable energy and $128,170 engineering as hot areas. “The infrastructure of the country needs repair,” $123,950 Brookins said.

He will be heading back to Randolph after graduation, ready to work in the lab again during summer and then begin classes in the fall. When asked for advice for rising upperclassmen, Bradley said they should keep their options open and join organizations. He himself had visions of becoming a meteorologist before joining the awardwinning robotics team at EMIT. It was only then, he said, that “I realized I really enjoyed programming.” The federal government isn’t the only institution touting STEM majors. U.S. News and World Report, which has become a force in college rankings, lists biomedical engineering, biometrics and forensic science as its Top 3 hot majors.

In the fall, a pair of volleyball teams made deep postseason runs, including Vanguard’s second straight state championship. Belleview marched to its ﬁrst Final Four under beloved longtime coach Gary Greer. The Trinity Catholic girls soccer team followed that up with a run to the state championship game in the winter, along with a weightlifting state title by Lake Weir’s BeJai Fray. Another key development to the prep sports scene this school year was the football coaching carousel around Marion. A record ﬁve different head coaches took over programs ready for a fresh start in 2014. whopping 136 goals while allowing just 23. First-year head coach Adam Long was blessed with a talented senior class that put up video game-like numbers. Twins Briana and Abbie Camargo, the co-players of the year, controlled the midﬁeld and combined for 163 points, while Alyssa Eashoo played multiple positions and ﬁnished with 22 goals and 11 assists. Katherine Kelly, a Nicholls State signee, led the Celtics’ suffocating defense. In all, the senior group played in three straight Final Fours. ing. The senior, who doubles as a track and ﬁeld star in the spring, used a 200-pound bench press and 170-pound clean-and-jerk to clinch the championship. Fray had ﬁnished fourth in the same weight class as a junior. Fray followed up her weightlifting championship with a state title in track and ﬁeld. The future Florida International University heptathlete won the long jump May 3 in Jacksonville with a distance of 18 feet, 11 inches. Football Only two county football teams played postseason games in the fall. It was the usual suspects with North Marion and Trinity Catholic continuing their runs of 10-plus years in the playoffs. The Colts and Celtics won their ﬁrst-round matchups before bowing out in the second round. Girls weightlifting Lake Weir’s BeJai Fray rolled to a state crown in the 139-pound weight class, becoming the Hurricanes’ ﬁrst state champ in girls weightlift- Seniors Natrell Jamerson (Vanguard) and Keiwan Jones (Dunnellon) dominated on the ﬁeld to win Star-Banner offensive and defensively player of the year awards, respectively. But it was the news of so many coaching changes that made headlines. The ball started rolling during the season when longtime North Marion coach Craig Damon announced he was stepping down after 13 years on the sidelines. Assistant Matt Johnson took over in an interim capacity after Week 2 and led the Colts to a district championship. Johnson stepped down after the season, which led to a statewide search. Stephen Field was hired in January from Miami Northwestern to continue the winning tradition in Sparr. West Port hired Matt Franklin to become its ﬁfth head coach in seven seasons. After ﬁnishing 1-9 in 2013, Franklin is attempt- Volleyball The Knights’ dominance continued on the volleyball ﬂoor after winning it all in 2012. With an uber-talented group of club players leading the way, Vanguard went 26-4 and dismissed two reigning state champions in seven sets at the ﬁnal four in November to stay on top of Class 6A. A talented group of seniors — Kira Lowell, Taylor McNamara, Shannon Domfort, Madison Murvin and Kiersten Farley — brought leadership to a team that outworked everybody all season long. Under head coach Jason Morris, there’s no reason to believe the Knights won’t be ready for a deep run again next season. With a hearty summer workout plan, a new group of rising seniors await to rule the roost, most notably Iowa commit Reagan Davey at outside hitter and reigning player of the year Lauren Donnelly at setter. While Vanguard’s run was expected, Belleview’s was not. With only two seniors, Mikaylah Gillespie and Taylor Wear, the Rattlers won their district and then four playoff games without needing a ﬁfth set. Belleview lost in the state championship game to private school powerhouse Bishop Moore. Gillespie, an all-around player and CF signee, led the way for the 25-5 Rattlers with 387 kills, 203 points and 126 blocks. ing to breathe new life to a program with an offseason program that should pay off this fall. Dunnellon hired ex-Frostproof head coach Price Harris to replace longtime coach Frank Beasley. Harris is just the Tigers’ third head coach in the last 18 years. Between a talented group of returning players, and Harris’ experience — he led Frostproof to the playoffs each of the last three years — the Tigers should be a live team moving forward. Lake Weir made a splash by hiring one of its own when former ’Canes quarterback Tim Hicks was hired. Hicks, who led LWHS to two winning seasons as a star quarterback in the mid-90s, will try to turn around a team that has been under .500 the last four years. Vanguard was the ﬁfth and ﬁnal team to make a hire. When longtime county coach Alex Castaneda retired, it paved the way for assistant Edwin Farmer to step in. The Vanguard alum brings plenty of coaching experience to the table, and the Knights hope to rebound from last year’s sub-.500 record. Elsewhere The Dunnellon boys basketball team made some noise this season by making the playoffs for the ﬁrst time since 2001 behind player of the year Andre Hairston, shooting guard Desmond Frazier and senior Willie Robinson. … The Vanguard boys and girls cross country teams kept up their dominance against the county with MCIAC titles. It was the boys’ 15th straight county title, and the girls’ 11th straight. Senior David Rood and junior Audrey Carpenter won individual county crowns and were named Star-Banner runners of the year. … Senior Taylor Dixon, a Concord University signee, led the Forest girls tennis team to the state meet for the second year in a row. … Rachel Nohr, Trystin Hogan and the Lake Weir softball team won a district championship for the ﬁrst time by beating perennial contender Belleview. … The Rattlers — behind seniors Hunter Childers, Scott Reid, Alex Arias and Isaac Swinehart — won their ﬁrst playoff baseball game since 1997. … North Marion won a district championship in baseball for a third straight season with the help of seniors Dalyn Jones, Nico Torino, Jeff Bell and Kadyn Uhl. … The Belleview softball team advanced to the state tournament for the second time in three seasons under longtime head coach Gary Greer. The spring sports season was not completed by this edition.

When choosing colleges, calculate the money factor By Claudia Buck The Sacramento Bee T his spring, millions of high school seniors are contemplating their college choices for next fall. Near the beach? Closer to big-city life at campuses in Seattle, San Francisco or NYC? Tucked into a smaller, more intimate college setting? In addition to where, another equally critical calculation in deciding which college to attend is how much. With college costs at budget-breaking levels, it can be a confusing, daunting, discouraging part of the college-acceptance experience. Parents like Mark and Julie Bradford face a double whammy. Their twins, Emma and Justin, have been accepted to a host of public and private universities, from the University of CaliforniaSanta Barbara to New York University. With two freshmen heading off to campus this fall, the Bradfords could easily be staring at $113,000 a year for both kids. “It’s shocking,” said Julie Bradford, speaking by phone recently, during a break between tours in Southern California. She and her husband have ﬁlled out the FAFSA ﬁnancial aid forms, visited campus aid ofﬁces and pored over campus tuition pages. Until their twins determine exactly which schools they’ll attend, the complete picture of exactly what the Bradford family will have to fork out in double-duty college costs isn’t clear. “It’s hard to ﬁgure it all out,” said Julie Bradford, noting that her husband, an environmental consultant, had compiled an Excel spreadsheet to compare tuition and room/ board costs for each of their 18-year-olds. College and ﬁnancial experts feel their pain. In recent years, there’s been a push to make the college-cost comparisons easier for families. For too many families, the how-to-pay-for-college equation has been “complex and confusing,” said Rohit Chopra, student loan ombudsman for the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, created by Congress to help consumers better navigate the complex world of ﬁnancial products. Under its “Know Before You Owe” project, the CFPB wants to arm students and parents “with clear information and a clear set of facts” before they take out costly student loans. For too long, Chopra said, “Many borrowers didn’t really understand much of the ﬁnancial aid information they got, because it was laden with jargon and lots of ﬁne print.” To strip away the confusion, the CFPB’s ﬁrst effort in 2012 was the Financial Aid Shopping Sheet, which is a streamlined, easy-to-read template that colleges can use to send out ﬁnancial aid information to their prospective students. It includes details on the school’s graduation rates, loan defaults and other data. As of this month, more than 2,000 public and private schools nationwide have adopted the “shopping sheet” format, ranging from tiny beauty schools to major universities like Stanford. On its website, the CFPB’s “Paying for College” section lets students plug in numbers from schools, three at a time, to make compari- sons of ﬁrst-year college costs. It also shows your potential student loan debt at graduation. “Even if they haven’t received their ﬁnancial aid offer from their school, they can use it to make estimates,” Chopra said. For example, if a student decides to live in cheaper, off-campus housing, that choice can affect how much they might need to borrow. The motivation behind such tools is trying to ensure that college students don’t blithely rack up tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt, which can drag down their post-college ﬁnancial life and even have an impact on their future career choices. In 2012, the average amount of U.S. student loan debt for graduating college seniors was $29,400, according to the nonproﬁt Institute for College Access & Success, a research and advocacy group. Elena Larson, assistant director in the student ﬁnancial services ofﬁce at California State University, Sacramento, often sees the results of college kids who borrowed too much. In some cases, she College costs: Where to compare Know Before You Owe: Part of the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the project helps consumers understand the benefits – and potential pitfalls – of student loans. Its Financial Aid Shopping Sheet, which includes one-year costs of college as well as graduation, borrowing and loan default rates, is an easy-to-read financial aid template used by more than 2,000 schools nationwide.

As the recession proved, that’s not always the case. The ﬁnancial burden of huge monthly student loan payments can affect their choices on getting married, buying a ﬁrst house or having a child. When choosing a college, “Don’t make a choice solely on money,” Larson said, “but if you can get by with less debt, you’ll never regret that.” 10G | OCALA STAR-BANNER | SUNDAY, MAY 18, 2014 www.ocala.com
