After graduation

Except for a marriage and the birth of a child, there probably isn't a better time for celebration than when your child finally graduates from college. For the graduate, a great sense of accomplishment, the lifting of a tremendous burden, and a sense of excitement and trepidation given the challenge of getting on with their adult life, finding a job, and moving out on their own. For the parents, interestingly enough, the same excitement and fears. For both, there is also the weight of paying off those enormous college loans within the next six months.

For parents and students alike, this section provides information that just might help during this potentially difficult transition period between college and job stability. You can select the links below, or use the tabs above.
