"How are you coping with rising tuition costs?" Staff writer Carol Krucoff and photographer Michael Ford Parks went to Catholic University in Northeast Washington, which will be raising undergraduate tuition by $300 next year in its fifth consecutive year of tuition hikes above $200, to ask students how they are handling the financial crunch . CAPTION: Picture 1, David Scuccimarra, 26, Mount Rainier, Md.: "Up until last year I was a full-time student working on my master's, but because tuition has gone up I got a full-time teaching job. I will have to go for my PhD part-time. I can't afford to be a full-time student."; Picture 2, Bill Jacobson, Michigan Avenue and 4th Street NE: "The only way I can finance my graduate education is by obtaining state guaranteed loans. I'm limited to $5,000 a year, and next year tuition will take a bite of about $4,000. That doesn't leave much to live on, so I live cheap and work about 20 hours a week."; Picture 3, Carolyne Papson, 17, campus resident: "I've got nice parents to pay tuition, and I'm looking for a job to help. I know a lot of students who have to take out loans."; Picture 4, Jean Jones, 28, Silver Spring, Md.: "I have a federal grant that pays enough for my tuition, but not enough to live on. Unfortunately, I had to move back with my parents and take a part-time job."; Picture 5, Kathy Franke, 31, Cheverly, Md.: "This is the first time I've been back to school in nine years, and I was shocked at the high tuition. But every private university has rising costs, so I'm paying for it."; Picture 6, Carol Hayes, 18, campus resident: "I pay half my tuition through summer jobs, and my parents pay half. There are work-study jobs for students, and I work for the registrar to help pay costs."; Picture 7, Rob Shaw, 21, Alexandria, Va.: "I detest the idea of another tuition hike.My parents pay for school, and I'm just about out of here.I'm in my fourth year."
