College takes a sizeable amount out of one’s wallet, and since paying for education is a primary concern for many, sometimes people forget that the expenses do no stop there; the Average Expenses of Recent Graduates infographic so neatly and sorrowfully illustrates the details of that fact.
For all those looking to get an idea of how much you will be dishing out monthly if you choose to live in a major city in the United States, the cost of living is detailed, broken down into major categories like food, transportation, etc. There are some new ‘basics’ to note that come with the generation we live in—the phone, TV and Internet are all costs that must be incurred to continue a ‘normal’ lifestyle.
Lo and behold, college payments will continue to haunt graduates forever, as student loan payments make up a chunk of the expenses young adults will have to bear as they become contributing members of society.
