Is your college student using federal student loans to finance spring break?

The Squared Away Blog reports:

New Use for College Loans: Spring Break!

“Yup, more than half of college students are using some of their student loan money to pay for spring break.” See: http://squaredawayblog.bc.edu/squared-away/new-use-for-college-loans-spring-break/
Even if college students are paying their own way (with earned income) for fancy week-long get-aways… should they be using funds in this way if they owe student loans? Something to talk about! (and who will come up with the bail money?)
