COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – In Ohio, 62-percent of college graduates have student loan debt with the national total over $1.5 trillion.  

Many students throughout the country have turned to Sugar Daddies to help fund their education.  

The world’s largest Sugar Daddy dating site, SeekingArrangement, released its annual report of the fastest growing Sugar Baby schools. 

Ohio University ranked 29th in the country. 

Just last year, 161 students joined the site bringing the total number of Sugar Babies at the college to 552.  

Georgia State University came in at the number one spot with 1304 students signed up.  

The University of Central Florida, University of Alabama, Florida State University and the University of Florida were the other colleges in the top five spots.  

Over 2.5 million of the 20 million members on the world’s largest Sugar Daddy dating site are American college students.

With an average monthly allowance of $3,000, student Sugar Babies can pay off tuition in about three months, leaving many with the ability to focus on achieving an education, according to the report.

“Over the past three administrations, the overall cost of attending college has more than doubled. Students are tired of hearing politicians campaign on the importance of education, job growth, and opportunity-just to leave promises on the convention floor,” says Brandon Wade, Founder and CEO of SeekingArrangement. “The numbers speak for themselves. Of the four million students on SeekingArrangement, more than 62 percent attend college in the U.S.”

Student loan debt is something that many college graduates continue to deal with.
