September 2013

This month we were lucky to be busy presenting fun money management workshops and activities all over campus.

In the residence halls, we had several "Money Truth or Dare" events where students learned important money management tips, shared their own experiences with money, and completed money-themed dares. All the participants also got to decorate their own piggy banks!

We debuted our new workshop format - Money Olympics. Participants complete a series of 8 activities that involve money management infographics and fun physical activities, while competing for prizes. The Nebraska College Preparatory Academy and the NU Athletics Life Skills program loved this workshop!

We also participated in Mid-Semester Check. We presented information for freshmen on how to save money throughout your UNL career, as well as how to reach your financial goals.

We partnered with the UNL Health Center to present budget-friendly snack ideas at the DN's Taste of Lincoln events, and passed out tips for preparing for study abroad trips, and how to save money when traveling, at the UNL Education Abroad Fair.

We have had lots of walk-in traffic in the office this semester and enjoy helping students find answers to their money questions!
