You Think the Economy Sucks? Try Leaving …

If you’re thinking you can skip out on this whole budget¬†crisis/economy mess by leaving the country and partying studying in another country, we hate to tell you, but uh … things just got a little more expensive.

Beside the 32 percent university fee hike that will follow you no matter which remote corner of the earth to which you try to flee, the Education Abroad Program (EAP) has decided to hop on the shake-’em-for-every-last-penny bandwagon and tack on a nice little “program-specific fee” in the area of $1,000 – $1,500.

The new EAP fees do not directly affect students participating with Quarter Abroad and Summer Abroad programs since they are campus-based. Well, now that you’re probably not leaving the country, that gives you lots of time to¬†protest the fee hikes here at home. Meh, the euro ain’t worth sh*t anyway.
