BATON ROUGE- College students are apparently going to dating websites instead of banks or their parents to get money to pay for college.

A website that connects wealthy people with life partners said LSU is in the top twenty colleges where students are signing up and looking for assistance paying for college from a future soul mate. So far, 113 people, claiming to be LSU students, have created accounts on the site.

Site creators said they are catering to women who are seeking older, established men- known as "sugar daddies." While the site was not created just for college students, 42% of users report they are enrolled in college and are hoping to find a benefactor.

The University of Central Florida ranked at the top of the list of colleges with the most students using the website. Just before LSU, at number 19, was Michigan State.

According to another dating website, nearly half of single Americans - 40 million people - use an online service.
