At LendEDU, we work to educate current and recently graduated college students about their finances. In January, we released an eye opening video titled A Scary Truth: Student Loan Borrowers Know Nothing About Their Student Loans ahead of our January survey.
The video was watched over 15,000 times, and our January survey received widespread coverage. This week, we are releasing the results of our 2016 College Students and Personal Finance Study. Ahead of the release, we wanted to share Part 2 of our A Scary Truth series.
In this video, we asked current undergraduate and graduate students a series of questions related to personal finance. Financial literacy is a well known and widespread issue in the United States but we wanted to find out what current college students really know about managing money and personal finance.

We asked students 26 questions related to managing money and financial habits. In this video you will see some of our favorite responses. We hope you find this video eye opening and entertaining. Enjoy!
At LendEDU, we create engaging (and free) resources and tools for current and graduated college students.
We hope you enjoyed our video. We thank all the students who agreed to participate. And, stay tuned for the results of our 2016 College Students and Personal Finance Study which is being released later this week!
Until then, we would love to hear your feedback, comments, and questions.
