Survey Shows Imagine America Foundation’s Financial Planning Made Simple Video Impacts Students’ Borrowing Decisions

Washington, D.C. (April 04, 2012) – Today’s “college-ready” students must be prepared to handle more than just the academic rigors of obtaining a college degree.

Results from a recent survey of Imagine America applicants show that viewing a short video about the advantages of developing a personal budget can make an impact on what students borrow for college.
