EP#69: Josh Went to a Private College. Did He Make the Right Choice? Will You?

Janet Maltbie and Josh Clemence discuss his $100,000 college experience.


Today on our program, No Loan Zone host, Janet Maltbie is on location with Josh Clemence at Boxcast, the best and easiest way to live stream events. 

Josh is a professional videographer and video content specialist at Boxcast. He is also co-owner of clevelandvideocompany.com. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from the University of Mount Union. 

In this podcast Josh recounts his time at Mount Union. After scholarships and grants, Josh took out $100,000 in student loans and 8 years later is still paying $1,000 per month for his college. 

Josh’s key takeaways:

  • “Paying off student loans is like paying alimony to a spouse you never married.”
  • “Have a good idea of what you want to do first, or take some time to explore that before you start spending the money on college.”
  • “If you are going to go to a four year college be super involved, because if you’re not, then you’re throwing away your money.”
  • “I started a business. I met my business partner there and made great memories. But at the same time, somebody else could spend $100,000 and just go through classes and just do what they’re told and get absolutely nothing out of it.”
  • “So if you’re gonna do it, it’s still up to you to make it a great experience.”
  • “The onus is still on you to kind of take initiative and find what you love and do all the extra steps. $100,000 isn’t going to do that for you.”
