Financial Information Project: Assessing the Financial Interests of College Students
Masuo, Diane M.; Kutara, Pamela; Wall, Ronald; Cheang, Michael
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v99 n3 p29-36 2007
College graduates are entering the world of work with record levels of school-related debt despite being generally unprepared to face the financial challenges of life after college. Findings from a needs assessment survey of financial topics of interest to college students and staff/faculty and preferences for how the information should be presented are reported. A comparison of responses from the students and staff/faculty surveyed shows general agreement in interests as well as the methods of receiving the financial information. Implications of the findings to students, extension agents, instructional faculty, and counselors are discussed. (Contains 5 tables.)
