Half of college grads still relying on parents' money

Students who graduated college in the throes of the recession are still struggling to make it on their own.

Two years out of college, half of graduates are relying on their parents or other family members for some sort of financial help, according to research from the University of Arizona, Norton School APLUS study. The study tracked more than 1,000 of its students over the course of five years -- from when they entered college in 2007 to 2013.
