Young adults feel financial strain

Think about the way you'd like to see your twentysomething start out life after college. A full-time job with financial stability. Living away from your cozy confines. Perhaps even thinking about buying a house, getting married and having children.

For many young adults, those types of goals and lifestyle choices aren't even on their radar because they're under financial stress, according to a new study released by the Norton School.The research, co-sponsored by the nonprofit National Endowment for Financial Education and the Citi Foundation, is the latest installment of a nationally acclaimed study launched in 2007 to track the financial attitudes and workplace changes of more than 2,000 students through their undergraduate college years and into adult life.
