The Great Depression

The Great Depression was the biggest economic down hill in American history. It was all started when the stock market crashed causing Wall Street to panic leading to letting go off millions of investors. This also caused the unemployment levels to go up as well up to 13-15 million Americans were unemployed and half of the banks failed. President Franklin D. Roosevelt helped with the great depression, and after World War II American history was restored.

Colleges in the 1930's

College tuition in the 1930's was around $250, text books were $35, room and board were $520, clothing $260. The differences between colleges then and colleges now is back then college wasn't taken seriously and wasn't needed in the sense that everyone was just working trying to get money nobody had time to go to school, because of the great depression. Now a days people are struggling because they didn't attend college now its more necessary.
