August 2013

We had a fun month welcoming our students back to campus!

We focused on creating our Fall 2013 promotional materials, including a tip booklet that included a variety of money management tips to help students save up to $15,000 per year!

We had the opportunity to be involved in the training program for University Housing's RAs. We provided fun bulletin board kits that included tips for how to prevent the "World's Biggest Rip-offs."

We also participated in Big Red Welcome. During the Party at the Union, students decorated piggy cupcakes, which were a hit!

We participated in all the Welcome Back events, where we supplied our best "Money Secrets" for starting the new school year on the path to money success!

This year we are focusing more on dispersing financial education through social media. In August, our social media users went up over 70%! We have created interesting, relevant money management campaigns for Facebook and Twitter.

We had lots of visitors to the SMMC during August, with questions about everything from understanding financial aid, to how to pay the student bill, to buying a new car, to setting up a Roth IRA. We're so happy we got to get to know so many of our new students, as well as our upperclassmen.
