BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - They're preparing to enter the workingworld after graduation. Local college students have a lot ofconcerns as the economy struggles to survive.
They are the business leaders of the future, but right now, mostof these college students are just trying to make ends meet, payingfor cars, rent, and student loans, so saving for the future is notan option.
Diana Chastek, business major said, "I try, but with littleexpenses you have, you need to buy books here or groceries there.It's hard, it's hard being a student."
And these students could face even greater financial challengeswhen they get out.
Dawn Thurnher said, "It's something I've given a lot morethought to here."
Thurnher has already taken a lot from this class, where thelessons are ever changing. "Some of the chapters he says, 'well,you can just take that page right out of the book, this one doesn'tcount, take it out of the book', so it's rapidly changing."
Economics Professor Ted Schmidt said it's an interesting time tobe teaching about finances. "I mean this is a major crisis, and noone really knows when we're going to hit the end of it."
