Default Student Loans

I a going to Michigan Tech Next year. I recieved $12,000 a year for 4 years for grades. The school is about $33000 a year. I have 200 shares of Waste Management, had about $22k in Mutual funds for College(521?) but that dropped to like $15k... and my grandparents have some saved up. But that's not nearly enough... I was offered a federal unsubsudized loan for $5500 a year. Interest is like 8% though. What other student loans are out there that you would recommend?
