    I give a very small amount (about $20-25) to both my undergrad and law school every year. I donate to the scholarship fund. I had partial scholarships to both and was grateful for the help, so I try to pay it forward a little.

    And, technically you’re not paying back your school.  You’re paying back your student loan company.

    No. And I never will. I make plenty of money but I just don’t see why I would give any of it to the university. I’m done there.

    My college gave me a full ride for my Bachelors, and they are giving me another one for my Masters in January, so YES, I will be donating.

    They really gave me a gift that will help me the rest of my life, and I hope I can help others in the same way!

    I didn’t really love my school.  I would not support that place.

    I went to 2 schools: a Community College and a private University.  The city college I’d absolutely donate to; I got a great education, teachers that cared, and it’s accessible to anyone.  The private University, though, I’ll never donate to.  I had a few great teachers there, but a few of the teachers were AWFUL.  Unfortunately, they taught for my major, and there was no other choice.  They were bad teachers and on top of that were trying to weed people out in Senior year just because they thought 35 people was too big a class.  One of them had half his class failing and never actually TAUGHT.  On top of that, it was a really expensive school.
