Sorry, that is all.
Ha, don't get me started. I will refrain from being juvenile. ... Gators make good Tiger Bait don't you think?
I wish a credit card company offered College Alumni Credit Cards. I would like one for my alum. I actually transferred to a different school my sophomore year. I graduated in 4.5 yrs, which is great considering that I had a baby and I transferred to a school that did things on the quarter system.
Some do. I know tinu got a UCF Alumni CC from BoA...I played the "Go Gators" game there too.
Some offer cards for programs too, for instance, my sister got an offer from BoA for a special education association visa sig card (she's an education major).
"* Apply for your own LSU Alumni Association MasterCard® credit card with WorldPoints® rewards. Choose the rewards that are right for you. Redemption options include unlimited cash rewards, airline travel with no blackout dates, brand-name merchandise, gift cards – even once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Don’t miss the opportunity to support LSU while earning rewards for yourself with everyday purchases."
Chase offers the UF one.
I'm an Alumni of Louisiana Tech University, however, I never got into the football much while I was there due to school, baby, 3 jobs.
LA Tech does not offer a Credit Card at this time. Boo!
I totally agree with the "skin in the game" concept. My husband and I are both faculty members at a Big Ten school and our biggest perk is 75% off tuition. Needless to say I've told both my kids that they are going to school here, it just makes financial sense for them. We've saved $$ in a 529a and will just almost be able to swing the whole four years, but I anticipate each one having to take out about ~10k in loans. This keeps them engaged in the process and hopefully instills responsability in them. My gola is that they don't get completly overwhelmed by loans (like I did, making stupid choices in grad school).
Also Ray I love to hear nice things about Minnesota colleges, I'm a proud U of M grad myself
