Why must college be so expensive?!?!

I'm taking 4 credit hours at my main college next semester. 1 is my co-op and the other 3 is an online elective class so I will not be on campus at all. I'm also taking 4 credit hours at a community college near me. The community college is 340 for everything except the book. My main college.... 300 in fees alone! 900+ in tuition. One credit hour is almost as much as a whole class at the other college. Then my co-op credit is 500. I don't get it. I'm not even attending college in a class but they feel they have a right to steal 700 dollars from me?! My fees are general fees, ok I don't mind that one, but it's a lot, engineering infrastructure fees-WTH? I'm not going to be in an engineering building/class next sem. Engineering technology fee-same as above..... I'm not using their. computers.

They've messed with my FASFA so that it only pays for 4 credit hrs instead of all of it since I'm considered full time and stole some of my scholarship money away. I just turned something is which I hope will fix this.

Lastly, my college makes up have healthcare-which I'm fine with. Free medical services on campus. Since I'm only enrolled in 4 credit hours they took it away from me... They can't pu it back up-I have to purchase it out of my own pocket. If they would've put it up FASFA would pay for it. Now I have to basically go broke if I want it. And my mom wonder's why I'm for national healthcare (since now it's a rip off.) It looks like I'm going to be doing something I said I'd never do-get on medicaid-madicare, which ever one is for poor people.

I have been working since Sept. I have not seen a cent of money yet, and starting to get really annoyed...

Ok I think my ranting is done.

Three C's: Cars, Co-op, College!

Wellmy breaks went out today. I was going a max of 30 in a 45 and it still look me FOREVER to stop. They just started acting up yesterday (that I noticed.) I turned into the frist mechanic I found and got lucky. They did breaks, and they were also Muslim. So I believe I got a decent discount and a free oil change. The bad thing-they were expensive, and I missed work. After sitting there for about 4 hours, they decided they couldn't finished it so they sent me home in another car.

I do have one question though. Do Afgani's hate Russians? I though the owner was Russian at first and he seemed a little offend. I know there has been issues in the past but I'm not to sure (yea American world history teaching!)

I officially have a co-op :) I got in with a Muslim on accident again. I submitted my resume without knowing he was Muslim and he offered me a job. He is also a professor at my college. (I think I may have talked about this already.)

Two more weeks and one day of college! I'm SOOOOOOOO ready for this semester to be over with, I been so busy.

Next semester I'm taking one online class and one class at a local community college-yes going to two colleges at once :) lol
