Many college graduates find transition difficult
As thousands of students prepare for graduation from Utah’s colleges and universities, many of them are finding it harder to move on to the real world than they had hoped.
Students across the state will be getting their diplomas in the coming weeks. BYU and Weber State’s commencement ceremonies are set for Friday. But with the current high unemployment rate, many of those soon-to-be graduates will skip the 9-to-5 job and go back to school or back to mom and dad instead.
“College debt is here now. It’s time to start looking at that,” says Westminster College senior Brody Leven.
University of Utah senior Kaeleigh Forsyth shares those same concerns.
