College-cost conundrum

As state support has waned, students making tough decisions
By Tyler Gates.
 
Bashash Walio sometimes regrets his decision to attend college. The Western State Colorado University student works 40 hours a week bagging groceries at City Market while attending college full-time. Walio is the first member of his family to pursue higher education in the United States after moving to this country from Ethiopia. He’s financing his college education himself.
