I have decided to start learning a new language or two—maybe more. Watch out Cardinal Giuseppe Mezzofanti, here I come.
If you want to learn a language, check to see if your school has purchased Rosetta Stone for its students. You could start learning the language of your choice for free!
Unfortunately, until I can write in Finnish, you’ll have to settle for your Daily Interest in English. Here it is!
- The U.S. Department of Education has approved additional disaster relief for borrowers impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Pretty cool of them. Check out our parent company, American Student Assistance, for more general disaster relief information.
- Entrepreneurship is all the rage today. Buzzfeed shared this creative way to make money for charity … or yourself (be honest about it). Not your cup of tea? You can do what this 13-year-old boy did and just invent something to scare lions away from your cattle. (I wonder if this would work to keep pet cats off my bed at night?)
- ABC news put out an article on the effects sequestration would have on student loans and rising tuition costs. Who knew it could cause as many as 70,000 students to lose funding for their loans or work-study programs? Good thing these unique scholarships exist to help us college kids make some money back. $7,000 for bagpipe majors? Maybe I should switch my vocation choice.
- My faith in the college loan situation took another striking blow today. The Huffington Post published an article on student loan delinquencies continuing to soar. MSN Money seems to think donating sperm is a good solution to paying debt back. Thanks, guys.
- To the American food industry: I don’t care how expensive beef is, please never try to pass off horse meat for a meat I consider edible. I prefer the pink slime. Thank you.
