Have Student Loans? Move to Niagara Falls and They’ll Help Pay
Niagara Falls recently announced plans to pay up to $3,500 per year of the student loans of recent graduates of both two and four-year degree programs if they commit to living in a specific neighborhood a few blocks from the falls.
Graduates would simply need to rent an apartment or buy a home in the area. They have to make the loan payments upfront, but after a year the city will cut them a check reimbursing them.

“Not being assaulted is not a privilege to be earned through the judicious application of personal safety strategies. A woman should be able to walk down the street at 4 in the morning in nothing but her socks, blind drunk, without being assaulted, and I, for one, am not going to do anything to imply that she is in any way responsible for her own assault if she fails to Adequately Protect Herself. Men aren’t helpless dick-driven maniacs who can’t help raping a vulnerable woman. It disrespects EVERYONE.”
