Give Your Students What They Want!
Students want to know how to make the right decisions with their money. After all, they go to college as an investment in their future. The last thing they want to do is start out stressing about money, having to make decisions against high pressure sales people and media who are trained to take their money. At the very least, students want to know the tactics that are going to be used against them. At the very best, they want to know the rules of money and how to win.
“The information was relevant to our lives and much appreciated!”
– Samantha Beard, Student, Ripon College in Ripon, Wisconsin
The earlier students are able to learn how to spend responsibly, the lower their chances of getting into financial trouble. The fewer students that experience financial stress, the fewer that will drop out of school. What that means to you is lower attrition, and more financially successful alumni.
