Upon graduating college the possibilities are endless. And for some, the sheer idea of not having a predefined path forward can be terrifying. College students have been led down a predefined path their entire lives until the day they graduate. Then what? Debt, jobs, pressure from family. Congratulations here is your diploma.

The stakes are higher beyond just the thoughts that surround the decisions of graduates. They are living in the growing problem of student loan debt. The average graduate in the United States owes about $30,000. Americans as a whole owe over $1.56 trillion in student loan debt. That’s about $521 billion more than the total U.S. credit card debt. Not only that, but only 27 percent of college graduates work in positions related to their field of study. So there is every reason for students to be stressed and overwhelmed.
