The College Experience – Learning How to Budget


Experience is a great teacher. We learn though successes, we learn through mistakes, and we even learn from the internet. This summer, we are helping our students learn before their college experience. We have pulled together our experience in working with some of the brightest students, experience from working on college campuses in counseling, student life, disability services, and collegiate teaching to help equip our students as they take on this next phase of their student careers. We have chosen eight, essential topics to having a successful college experience in and out of the classroom.

This week our topic is Learning How to Budget in College.

In week 8 of the 8 week course, we will help equip you with the basic tools you need to learn what resources can be available to you.  We will discuss; financial aid, work study options, simple budget skills, and learning how to understand your personal views of money.

Everyone has a different method of managing their finances and for some people their method works well, for others, it takes years of learning from mistakes before they can get their finances in a healthy position.

TIP: There are four emotional views of money – 
1) Status
2) Security
3) Enjoyment
4) Control

We are looking forward to helping you understand how these views impact your finances, BEFORE you head off to college! For more information or to register for The College Experience, click here!
