Here’s the news that caught my eye today while anxiously awaiting tonight’s NBA tip-off. (And hopefully the end of any talk about millionaires “not feeling loved.”)
- In a new Forbes article, Ben Stein details how to manage your money so you don’t go broke. Step 1: Don’t star in a TV show in which you give away your own money! (What do you mean it wasn’t really his money?!)
- This can’t be good for Facebook’s stock. A new study indicates that intense usage of the site leads to “higher credit card debt, lower credit scores, and even bigger waistlines.” Now there’s a status update I’ve yet to see.
- The U.S. Department of Education outlines 3 things to do during your grace period, including checking your loans on NSLDS. Don’t want to actually look at your data? Well, at least check that you have your student loan PIN to access it when you need to. (Don’t make me beg.)
- What’s America’s spookiest college campus? Ohio University, which is haunted by, among other things, the specter of an entire basketball team. (So that’s what happened to Gary Trent! The Shaq of the Mac? Yeah, I thought it was a stretch anyone else would remember him…)
- And, finally, our thoughts go out to the millions of people impacted by Hurricane Sandy. If you were affected by this disaster and have student loans, check out this natural disaster information from Federal Student Aid. You may be able to postpone your repayment, if you need to.
