Going to college

Even though the Depression lingered, some students were still trying to achieve getting a college education. One hundred men and women had met their $75 expense of attending one year at Kidder Junior College. Other expenses still had to be added in: driving from home, light housekeeping, very cheap rents and very reasonable terms on room and board.

The Inter-county Junior College at Cameron had an estimated 150 students. The students could either drive to college or board inexpensively. Rice Hall had rooms for girls at 50 cents and 75 cents a girl per week. Table board for boys and girls was approximately $3.50 per week.
