Descrizione

College cost a lot of money. I was reading the Washington Post this morning. They had an article about a school librarian that had graduated from college three years ago. She owed $60,000 in student loans. Since she had graduduated, with interest she owed $69,000.00.


She was worried about how she was going to get out of debt.


Being a Dartmouth Grad, I went to Google and searched for, “Cost of Dartmouth College.” It came right up. This is what I found.


Tuition $49,000


Room and board $15,000


Books $1,300


Other Stuff $1,500


Total per year cost $70,000.00


$70,000 times 4 years equals $280,000.00.


That is the sum for an undergraduate degree. Look at the figure, do the math. Is it worth it.


Sure, all of my life I can put on resumes, “Dartmouth College.” But was it worth the $280,000. Is it worth it for you or your child.


In the next 100 or so pages, I'm going to tell you a bit about my life, about Dartmouth, What I learned at Dartmouth and hopefully, I am going to share some insight.


It could be you are one of the top 1 percent of the income earners in the United States that $280,000 is like $5.00 to the rest of us. If that is the case, don't buy this book.


If you are one of the 99% of us, you may want to read on.


You may not be going to Dartmouth and spending Dartmouth money for college, but where ever you go, or where ever you are thinking about going, it's going to cost you more than $20,000 per year, on the low end, plus interest.


I'm hoping that I can shed some light on maybe a new way to think about your future and your investment in education and in life.

Editing of this book.

I didn't send this book to the editor. You will find some grammar challenges and some typos. I know for a fact I spelled Wellesley wrong several times.

Before Dartmouth

Growing up, from the Black city to the White Country

From first grade to 3rd grade, I grew up living in an apartment, an ok apartment with my mom, dad and only sister on the east side of Columbus, Ohio. A solid black community. The only white people we saw were the ones on television. It was a clean, safe community. I walked to my elementary school there and back every day. Though I didn't like going to our Episcopal church every Sunday, it was only 2 blocks away, and next door to the church was the YMCA.

Life was good.

My dad had a Good white collar job, working for the federal government. My mom was the secretary of the vice president of the Ohio State University. They both worked hard and never, ever missed a day of work.

Then, they decided to build a house in the country on the far, far west side of Columbus, Ohio. There was almost nothing around the house except for a creek and woods. That is were I would spend the next 10 years of my life.

Now instead of seeing only black people, all I saw was white people and the only black people I would see were the ones on TV.

It would get very hot and humid in the summer time in this house. This was in the day before air conditioning. The good thing is the house was big and on 2 acres of land so there was usually a breeze. If it got really hot, my sister and I would turn on the water hose and spray each other.

Of course there were two giant swimming pools. One next door, The Moose Lodge, and there was the Wee Bonnie Swimming pool and golf course right down the road within a 4 minute walk. Most of my friends from school went to these two pools, but they were white. Both pools let in anyone that was white, but no one that was black.

My schools, elementary, middle school and high school were all a great distance from our house, so every morning I would spend 30 minutes on the school bus.
