As the sleepy days of summer come to an end, Madison, Wisconsin, is teeming with activity as thousands of University of Wisconsin students prepare for the annual event known as Madison Move Out.
Fall semesters are cranking-up across the nation and students are heading to campus for another year of higher education. Not every student needs to rent a moving truck to get their stuff back to school, but if you’re one of those who do, below are some benefits to making that move in a Penske truck.
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.
