Graduation season has arrived and thousands of college seniors are about to leave school with a diploma — and quite often a lot of debt, too. School loans will have to be repaid, student credit cards have to be paid off and mom and dad may not be as willing to help out with extra cash. To help students sort through money issues NPR's Alex Chadwick turns to Michelle Singletary, who writes the syndicated column "The Color of Money" for The Washington Post and is author of the book 7 Money Mantras for a Richer Life.
