The weather is finally getting warmer, finals are just around the corner, and we’re winding our way down to the end of the spring semester. Our seniors will be graduating (congratulations Class of 2013!) and we’ll be preparing for new freshmen to make their way to campus in just a few short months. Here at CU Money Sense, we’re coming up with ways to make sure all our students (future and present) make smart financial decisions while attending CU and after graduation.
According to a study conducted by Sallie Mae, “Eighty-four percent of undergraduates admitted the need for more financial management education. Of these, 64% would have preferred some type of financial literacy education in high school and 40% as college freshman.” Managing money, scholarships, and student loans can be confusing. This is why we want to remind all our students that CU Money Sense is a financial literacy program—on campus—designed to help YOU out. Through free workshops, seminars, and one-on-one sessions (coming soon), we are available as a resource to help you figure out your personal finances.
We have a lot of new and exciting things coming up in the future. We hope you’ll continue to check our website for new events, weekly blog posts, and fun and helpful tools and resources. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a financial literacy workshop for your campus group or organization, please don’t hesitate to email us at CUmoneysense@colorado.edu or contact our new Financial Literacy Educator, Niomi Williams, at (303) 492-0726.Share on Facebook
