Very soon, thousands of college students will be donning caps and gowns, grabbing their diplomas and marching into the “real world.” So, what will that world look like? A new infographic from SpareFoot gives a glimpse into that world.Here are just a few nuggets of information in the infographic:
- 51 percent of college graduates plan to move to a new apartment after school.
- Among college graduates who are moving, almost three-fourths are relocating away from their college town.
- 80 percent of college graduates would relocate to a city where they can find a job rather than to their favorite city.
A lot of this year’s college graduates actually will be moving back home, a new survey by Accenture found. One-third of 2013 graduates plan to live at home after graduation, while 44 percent of 2011 and 2012 college grads live at home now, the survey showed.
