Managing Your Financial Aid Funds – It’s Not Like Winning the Lottery!
5 p.m., Bowen-Thompson Student Union, Margartet Meilink Anderson Room (Room 315)
Often, students who receive financial aid refund checks see those funds as a windfall or “free money” and go on a spending spree. More often than not, that choice proves to be unhelpful and, in some cases, very detrimental to the student’s financial future. Spending without a plan is the number one reason why many of us get into serious financial trouble. Join us in a discussion with staff from Student Financial Aid and Student Money Management Services to explore beneficial strategies in the use of your financial aid funds.
