Title: College Student's Financial Wellness: The Impact on Individuals, Family and Communities
Wednesday, November 15th, 2017
College student loan debt has exceeded the $1.3 trillion mark (Nasiripur, 2017) and student loan delinquency has reached 11.2% (Pianin, 2017). It is imperative to help families understand the complexities of student loans and help students understand that life-style choices can prevent or exacerbate debt load. Their spending choices ultimately impacts a whole community, beginning each day, not at some distant point after a degree is earned. Results from two research studies will be utilized to enhance the course offerings for the Literacy in Financial Education (LIFE) Center at Eastern Illinois University.
