Tallahassee, FL - We first told you about the growing popularity of FSU students using "Sugar Daddies" to pay for their tuition in February.
Now it's graduation time, and a new report shows how more female students will be leaving campus with their degrees, and without debt.
Taylor Barros is used to FSU being a high-ranked school. But, making the top sugar daddy list.
"I'm shocked. Oh, my gosh; especially that it's going on around me." She says.
SeekingArrangement.com just released its list of the "Top 15 Sugar Baby Alma Maters."
It ranks FSU 8th with 240 percent more female students graduating by using Sugar Daddy funds.
The website says a "sugar daddy" is a successful man who is willing to offer financial help or gifts in return for friendship and companionship.
Barros says, "It's kind of upsetting. I don't like it that women have to degrade themselves to get an education. C'mon, that's upsetting. it shouldn't be like that."
The report says 37 million Americans have outstanding student loan debt. In 2011, the report claims 52 percent of college Sugar Babies graduated debt free because of their mutually beneficial arrangements. But, in 2012 that number jumped by 15 percent.
FSU Student Danielle Sanders says, "If it works for them, it works for them. Congratulations for them for graduating debt-free. But, there are moral issues that kind of come into question. But, I'm not a person to judge other people, so, good for them."
SeekingArrangement.com says the average college Sugar Baby receives about $3,000 per month to cover the cost of tuition, books and living expenses.
Barros says her out-of-state fees are $2,500 a semester. But she says she wouldn't turn to a sugar daddy.
"No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no." Says, Barros.
Please see the press release below for the full Top 15 list of universities.
