Classes are full at College of the Desert with enrollment higher than ever before at a nearly 8 percent jump from last year. "I can't register for any classes," says C.O.D. student David James. "There are too many students." An increasing amount of students are attending two-year colleges, avoiding the large price tag of a university education. Students typically pay 80 percent less at a junior college compared to a university. Now, with high food, home and gas prices, students are learning a real-life lesson in economics.... Students are looking for other ways to save by not driving to school everyday. Instead, they're taking classes online right from their home.
