The Gen Z Approach To College

Today’s students, Generation Z, are on course to become the most educated and entrepreneurial generation in history. For our youngest alive, it’s all about employment. In fact, 60% of Gen Z students plan to start a business someday, and 92% expect to work for less than 6 employers throughout their lifetime. 

If this isn’t enough to highlight their advanced ambition, lay your eyes on this: nearly half of Gen Z school students have already earned college credits. Moreover, to stray from the rising student debt crisis, Gen Z spends their extra free time volunteering and doing homework. The average student spends 6.48 hours per week on homework and 2.66 volunteering.

Nearly 9 in 10 Gen Z college grads consider job availability before selecting a major. With unemployment at its lowest since 1969, why is our youngest generation so concerned about employability? Check out the infographic below for more information on the ways Generation Z is reshaping the college years.
