This report presents the findings of a nationally representative sample of 571 U.S. residents who graduated from a four- year college between 2006 and 2010. Our overall goal was to better understand the articulation between their formal education and their initial positions in the workforce. We examine how students financed their college education and how much debt they carried away from it, how well college prepared them to enter and be successful in the labor market, and what they would do differently in their college education if they knew then what they know now. We also show the diminished expectation of financial success this generation seems to manifest.
