Money Matters: A Brown Bag Series
This April 2013, the WIU Financial Aid Office will be hosting weekly seminars to support and celebrate National Financial Literacy Month.
These informal sessions are free and open to WIU students, no registration required. The series will be held every Wednesday evening in April at 5:30 p.m in the Corbin Electronic Classroom (Corbin 1032 - located outside of the Corbin/Olson Dining Center).
Students are invited to bring their own dinner or purchase one in the dining hall - then join our staff as we discuss:
- Strategic Spending (4/3) - To be financially successful, you've got to think strategically when it comes to money. Learn how to reduce your spending and plan ahead.
- Make Your Money Work (4/10) - Put your hard-earned money to work for you! Learn about risk and return while we cover the fundamentals of investing.
- The Cost of Credit (4/17) - Do you understand the power of credit? With great power comes great responsibility - learn how your financial scorecard is tallied up.
- Beyond the Paycheck (4/24) - When evaluating your earning potential, look beyond the numbers. Learn more about the big picture as we discuss employment and compensation.
Attendees will receive a FREE, printed copy of our 2013 Money Management Calendar, a vital budgeting resource full of strategic guidance! Prizes good at local retailers and restaurants will also be given away in a free raffle each week!
Please anticipate each session lasting approximately 30-45 minutes. Questions? Please contact Diana Strom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
