Financial Wellness 101
Now that you are at college, handling your financial decisions have become more your own responsibility. You need to be careful of the pitfalls of certain decisions that can affect you for years after you graduate from school. Come to this session to learn how to make good financial decisions, avoid the bad ones, and what the difference is between good and bad debt. If you start making healthy, wise money decisions now, you won't have to worry so much later.
Stress is part of living, and coming to college means adjusting to a new life. Learning how to better manage the changes and stress improves mood, health, relationships - and chances of cusses in college. The Staff of the Counseling Center will lead this interactive workshop which includes discussion, tips, and relaxation exercises.
