Salisbury University Seniors Prepare for Graduation

Posted: 08/27/2017 15:02:00 -04:00 Updated:

SALISBURY, M.D.--Summer vacation is officially over for some college students. Classes at Salisbury University start Monday. 

Comforters, TV's and a lot of boxes were seen on Salisbury University's main campus Sunday, August 27, as students move in. 

While some students are excited about the start of a new school year, some seniors are nervous about what the future holds. 

"I really don't know with the job market now, something that you have now, you might not get. Everyone is trying to get a job after college, so the market is pretty competitive," explains Salisbury University senior, Kim Moseman. 

Forbes reports that the millennial generation has a 12.8 percent unemployment rate, compared to the national average of 4.9 percent. These numbers worry some seniors. 

"The current job market for my field, is pretty competitive," says Exercise Science major, Adam Weaver. 

Students like Kim also worry about their ability to pay back student loans.

"Student loans are really weighing on me, I have two younger brothers who are also in college right now, and my mom just got another degree, so student loans are not a stranger to us," says Moseman.

Federal subsidized loans require repayment six months after graduation.

Salisbury University has a career center that helps students find internships and full-time jobs.
