“What’s the Catch with Credit Cards?”

She answered questions such as “Why is it important to build credit?” “What are some dangers of having a credit card?” and “What types of purchases should I use a credit card for?”
Dr. James Philpot, Director of the Financial Planning Program at Missouri State, gave insight in how to utilize compounding interest in order to invest money wisely and build wealth.
“IDK: I Donut Know”
The Real L.I.F.E. staff set up shop in the Plaster Student Union to educate students on common financial aid questions and facts that many students may not know. Students were given a Krispy Kreme donut, as well as a sheet with many facts about financial aid.
