Financial Health Seminars Focus on Helping Students Save Money

 

Most students don’t take their financial health into consideration until their debts and loan payback are staring them in the face. Students don’t often get the chance to learn about other necessary parts of adulthood such as how to file their taxes, how to buy a car, or even the importance of life insurance.

These subjects and more will be the topics of discussion at the Financial Health and Wellness Seminar hosted by Southwestern and in conjunction with the Business Administration Department’s Personal Finance class. Everyone is invited to attend the seminars, not just students who are registered for the class. These seminars start tonight and will continue throughout the semester.

These seminars are meant to provide students with concrete knowledge that they can take with them beyond the campus after they graduate. “Every one of the seminars we are having are going to include topics that pertain to student financial life that they can use,” says Dr. Aaron Moses, seminar coordinator and Personal Finance professor.

Each seminar will be presented by a different person, but they will always be hosted in Pechero Hall Room 128. The first of these is tonight, Jan. 17 at 6 p.m. and will cover personal financial statements, bookkeeping and budgets.
