Ellen Just Paid For An Entire Group Of High School Seniors To Go To College

By Mustafa Gatollari

It's no secret that college in America is going downhill. Not only are our national rankings rapidly losing ground to international universities, but the cost of education is now at an all-time high.

However, thanks to the generosity of the Ellen Show, host Ellen DeGeneres, and Walmart, every student in this class of graduating seniors will be able to pursue four years of college without incurring even a penny of student debt. I'm not crying, you're crying. Seriously, a college degree with zero debt is the new American dream, something ever family hopes to achieve but which seems less and less attainable every year.
