Graduating with a degree of financial security.
It’s been said that money can’t buy happiness, but it can certainly help win security and satisfaction. In this day and age, the world revolves around money, and you need it to gain your desires, satisfy your needs, and guarantee a secure lifestyle. Attending college is a huge step where money is involved, and one would like to come out of the experience with a degree of financial stability. It is important to prepare for the financial insecurities after college graduation. I think the most important thing I can do to be financially stable when I graduate is to get a part-time job throughout my schooling and summers and save a percentage of the money I earn. I can then use these funds to start paying off any loans I may have obtained throughout college. Also, I won’t frivolously use credit and create mountainous debt on top of my loans. If I take these crucial first steps, I think that I can be well on my way to financial security within a few years of college graduation.
