I never realized how easy we had it - $25 per credit cost at my state college back in the late 70's-early 80's. Total tuition and fees for my 4 year bachelor's degree was less than $5,000. I still can't believe it.

That was because the residents of your state were willing to tax themselves to pay for other peoples' childrens' education. How far we've come (I want my country back-).
