Who Needs College? Buy an Island!


Elle Johnson

According to CollegeBoard, the average annual cost to attend a private university is $31,231, $9,139 for an in-state public university, and $22,958 to attend an out of state public college.

Room and board make up a lot of the annual cost of attendance. But instead of paying for a tiny dorm and overpriced textbooks, just buy a private island!

The cost of islands starts at around $20,000 and go upwards to $50,000,000. Anyways, here are some islands you could buy instead of attending college for four years.
