What do Halloween and Graduation Day have in common? Both are frightening.

When college graduates walk across the stage in December, don’t be surprised if they’re shuffling toward their diploma like a zombie seeking brains to eat.

That’s because the moment they pick up their degree, they’re also making payments on a scary amount of student loan debt. Only a few days before Halloween, a Harris Poll revealed some terrifying news: Many student loan borrowers have little money left over for other important purposes. For instance…

  • 39 percent have delayed saving for retirement
  • 30 percent have delayed buying a home
  • 18 percent have delayed setting a college fund for their children

Don’t let these spooky student loan stats make you brain dead. You don’t have to live in fear. Watch this short Halloween-inspired video…

…and instead of eating brains, ease your mind. can help. Check out our Student Loan Education Center, or call one of our certified credit counselors at 1-888-472-0365 for a free debt analysis.
