Brewton-Parker College was founded in 1904 and is located in Mount Vernon, Georgia, offering students a small, intimate education experience in the quiet town. Out of two thousand four hundred people who live in the town, some one thousand one hundred and ten of them are students at the college. Although many students will be attracted to being so connected with the townies, this comes at a serious sacrifice. A four-year education costs one hundred and thirteen thousand dollars, but only seventeen percent actually graduate on time. The twenty-year net return on investment is approximately negative ninety-two thousand dollars, which is abysmal.
