Catholic Vantage Financial Hosts College Financial Prep Workshop
Going to college is the start of an exciting new adventure for many young adults. To help students become financially prepared, Catholic Vantage Financial (CVF) is hosting a College Financial Prep Workshop 101 on Wednesday, August 3. The workshop will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the credit union’s Plymouth branch located at 8817 Sheldon Road, at the northwest corner of Sheldon and Joy Roads.
“Getting the right start with finances helps pave the way for a student’s success, said Emma Teller, CVF vice president of marketing and business development. “If you go on a trip, you usually want to have a good map or GPS system. Starting college is much the same. It helps to have a good financial plan.”
Workshop topics will include tools for budgeting and managing living expenses in the dorm or an apartment, along with tips for managing checking accounts and credit cards, how to establish good credit, protect yourself from identity theft and more.
Among the attendees to the College Financial Workshop will be Megan Hammond, a blogger and intern for Catholic Vantage Financial, who will be a college freshman in the fall.
Hammond said, "Over the last several months, I have learned invaluable financial skills that I know will serve me well as I head off to college. Financial education is something that is largely misunderstood, especially by millennials, so I hope that my blog can be an informative avenue to educate people my own age."
This free workshop is open to the public with free pizza and pop provided. To sign up, email email@example.com or call (734) 432-0212.
