Make it Rain - Financial Wellness for Students on a Limited Budget
There are many financial literacy resources out there, but very few cater to college students and the college experience. Many of these courses neglect tips on how to budget with limited funds, savings based on a restricted income, and overall, how to survive in college financially. This webinar will highlight challenging areas for students financially, engage students in smart decision making, and provide tips and skills for students to spend, budget, save, and pay for school. The webinar will also address the aspect of financial wellness and help relieve stressors associated with it.
After viewing this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Engage in smart decision-making regarding college student budgeting, spending, and saving
- Learn about resources for scholarships and grants
- Understand that finances and financial stability have an impact on wellness
