LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - With college tuition on the rise, a steady minimum wage and federal grant aid declining, students are forced to seek alternate solutions or worse not even go to school.
For those that do want to attend school they face tuition 60 percent higher than students in higher education a decade ago.
More than one million college students have joined SeekingArrangement.com, the world's largest Sugar Daddy dating website, that makes up 42 percent of the site's Sugar Baby membership.
What is a Sugar Baby? An attractive, young woman who wants to date someone who will pamper them and help mentally, emotionally and financially, usually a student, actress or model. Female co-eds use Sugar Daddies to help pay for their education and they receive about $3,000 per month.
Two of Michigan's most reputable universities are in the top 50 of fastest growing sugar baby schools, Michigan State ranks 19th and U of M ranks 36.
"Why hope for financial aid when you can guarantee it with a Sugar Daddy?" says Brandon Wade, founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement.com. "Student loans lead to endless debt, which amounts to more than a new graduate can handle. Sugar Scholarships provide real solutions to the problem of student debts."
As an incentive, SeekingArrangement offers free premium memberships to students who register using their .edu email accounts.
The site has seen a 54 percent increase in new memberships from just one year ago.
