UC college chicks don't need daddy to pay for school and all those four-year parties anymore, but what they do need are their sugar daddies.
A new poll claims that an increasing number of female students from UC Berkeley and UC Davis are tapping sugar daddies for college tuition -- high fees and crippling education budgets are rarely good things, but they are if you're a would-be sugar daddy.
According to SeekingArrangement.com, a sugar daddy website, there's been a 67 percent increase in the number of female students attending UC Berkeley who signed up for the online service, specifically to find a sugar daddy who will help fund their education, dorm expenses and weekend fun.
When you think about it, that's actually kinda smart.

Female pupils at UC Davis seem to be even more desperate to learn -- the survey showed there was a 220 percent increase in the number of girls signing up for a sugar daddy. To put this into context, a non-state resident living on campus would have to shell out $55K for tuition, books, transportation, living expenses, and health insurance.
Brandon Wade, CEO and Founder of SeekingArrangement.com, thoughtfully explained that collegiate girls have found a new way to offset the the skyrocketing college tuition. "College should be an opportunity to expand the mind and experience new things," says Wade. "Unfortunately, because of the of recent tuition hikes, the college experience has become greatly unbalanced. I believe that they are proactive in pursuing a higher education."

According to the Pew Research Center, one out of five households can trace their debt to student loans. Yes, the average monthly cost of living expenses, tuition, and book fees varies for each college; however, BusinessWeek estimated the average cost of each student loan is about $25,250, Wade says. Rather than worry about whether college degrees are worth the debt, college girls on SeekingArrangment.com have opted to find "benefactors" who can help revive the education system.
Fortunately, there's no shortage of lonely rich men San Francisco.
