BETHANY, W.Va. – Bethany College will host a free personal finance and money management seminar for college students on Monday, April 14. The presentation, “Ultimate Money Skills: Scholars, Dollars, Budgets & Bills,” will begin at 7 p.m. in Weimer Lecture Hall at the Richardson Hall of Science.
The program is being presented by “Making It Count,” which is owned and operated by employment counseling and job-search Web site Monster.com. It focuses on how choices students make about money while they are still in college can have a direct impact on their prospects for future financial success.
“According to the Consumer Federation of America, 78 percent of undergraduate college students have at least one credit card,” said Making It Count vice president J.R. Cifani. “Knowing that undergraduates are busier than ever with academics, internships and extracurricular activities, we have developed a succinct yet informative program aimed at helping them make sound financial decisions.”
The seminar is being conducted in conjunction with Bank of America. More information about the presentation can be found online at www.makingitcount.com.
