Georgia State University topped the list, bumping New York University from its number one spot to number two.

“It’s tough. The South went from being the epitome of success and money to faring the worst in terms of well-being,” says Founder and CEO, Brandon Wade. “Even if NYU is still our biggest Sugar Baby University, the growth of southern female coeds seeking the Sugar Lifestyle is a move in the right direction to bring back Southern charm.”
SeekingArrangement.com is the world’s largest Sugar Daddy website with over two million members worldwide. In 2011, 40% of the website’s total population was comprised of college students. But after a 58% increase in co-ed signups in 2012, that number rose to 44%. The website encourages the growth of the student population by offering college students a free premium membership upgrade if they register with their college email address (.edu).
“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.”
According to the Pew Research Center, one out of five households are in debt due to student loans. Though the average monthly cost of living expenses, tuition, and book fees varies for each institution, Bloomberg Businessweek estimated the average cost of each student loan at approximately $25,250. With more students debating the true value of a college degree versus the risk of debt, female students on SeekingArrangment.com have chosen to find benefactors who can help pay for the high cost of an education.
