They say you can't put a price on higher education, but that's not stopping lady Sun Devils from trading in their transcripts for some tantalizing photos on www.seekingarrangements.com. The online sugar-daddy site recently conducted a survey based on its growing number of female ASU student users --- and apparently, there's a lot of them.

According to Seeking Arrangements, ASU had 318 students on its dating site earlier this year, making it the sixth largest school for sugar babies in the country. Incidentally that ranking has only increased since the university raised the cost of tuition for the 2013-14 school year by three percent. Now the number of sugar-daddy-seekers has hit 400.
Of course, according to Seeking Arrangements, this trend of dating older, wealthier men (and reaping the financial benefits it entails) is nothing to be ashamed of. In a press release issued by the site's founder and CEO Brandon Wade, Wade wrote that "nothing is wrong with having the determination to ask for help. Clearly, more female college students are resourceful in achieving their ultimate goal: to graduate with a degree." Seeking Arrangements recently polled 900 ASU women, 68 percent of whom confirmed that were seeking a sugar daddy to pay their way through college.
Looks like student debt is the best thing to happen to older men since Viagra.
