Financial Literacy: Events
This page is under construction. The hope is to have all events (more are forthcoming!) scheduled soon (January 2018).
10+ EVENTS | 4 DAYS | FREE & OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
"Finances are the #1 reason that students withdraw from college
and what gives them the most stress."
All events will be held in the Morgan Library Event Hall (Room 167, Event Hall on map).
Please note that these dates are different than the National Money Smart Week dates, because they are too close to Finals Week.
