For those who attend college and sign for loans, just like with a mortgage and vehicle payment, repay the loans. It is NOT supposed to be easy. Or, find an employers who pays for classes. Or, apply for scholarships. Making those who did not get a chance to go to college pay for others who are defaulting on their college loans is beyond wrong.
