Tonawanda News — Jeff Floff of Kenmore, who is entering his senior year at Buffalo State College as an English major, said he’s heard nightmare stories about student debt from friends. He admits he’s been fortunate: His parents have been able to save for his college before he was born, more than 20 years.

“I was definitely very lucky,” he said, “and I had very smart parents.”
