Session 2: Budgeting
March 1, 4:00 pm, JH 220
with Cassie Brown, Tech MBA graduate and Raymond James Financial Planner
How do you feel about budgeting? Yes, no...maybe so? Is there more than one way to budget? Do you have to use Excel? What if all that planning makes you queasy? Tackle these questions and more with this session on the building blocks of budgeting--which can be much simpler than you think.
Session 3: Building Credit
April 5, 4:00 pm, Johnson Hall 220
Credit has a huge impact on your life, well beyond student loans. It can determine the cars you drive, which house you can buy, and the school zone where your kids live. Credit matters, but it can be overwhelming to navigate. How do you build credit when you're just starting out? Dr. Alma Nuñez will guide participants through that process in this session.
April 24, 5:00 pm, Johnson Hall 103
We will recognize our graduates with plaques and in the program for our April awards banquet. Bring friends and family, and celebrate what you've learned! Let us know who's coming by April 17th.
