Money Matters: Learn how to handle bills, loans, and more before graduation!

Graduation is right around the corner, and with it comes the promise of adventure, new opportunities, and plenty of fiscal responsibility. Have you thought about what your monthly student loan payments are going to look like? How about rent, insurance, and other bills? Have you started building up credit yet?

As the College prepares to send the Class of 2018 out into the world, practical advice about an essential part of adult life   —  personal finance  —  would be a timely help.  Now in its second year, “Money Matters,” will offer seniors (and forward-thinking juniors) sessions on budgeting, credit and why it’s important, and managing student loan debt.  Dan Mercurio, member of the Class of 2001 and now general manager at SigFig, a wealth management company, joins accounting Professor Joe Foley and AC Director of Financial Aid Lori Moore, for these just-in-time workshops offered on consecutive Tuesdays in March.  We all know money matters, and seniors will be more ready for that new challenge after these sessions.
