People wish they had learned more life skills in college


What do you wish you had learned in college? A survey by Experian Boost found that 81% of respondents said they wish they were taught more life skills in college. Among those skills they wish they had learned -- how to invest, how to budget, long-term financial planning, and how to manage their student loan debt. And then there were the more basic life skills … 17% of the college grads surveyed said they still don’t know how to cook or do their own laundry. 26% said they can’t do basic home maintenance -- like unclogging a toilet or resetting a Wi-Fi router.

Maybe that’s why, according to the survey, 30% of recent college grads moved back in with their parents.
