Get “Money Smart” at Our Lunch & Learn

Dr. Debra Sherrill is back to teach us about financial resources. All attendees will receive a free CD of “Money Smart” software which is an interactive game that teaches the basics of banks, saving, credit, loans, buying a home and how to recover from a financial setback. We’ll also discuss some examples of apps and tools that can help you track your expenses or remind you when bills are due. A light lunch will be served. Sponsored by Student Life and the Family Resource Center.
