Big financial decisions are often postponed until after graduation out of fear, but the BYU Student Alumni Association hopes to ease fears and provide student and alumni with some basic financial knowledge.
On Mar. 2 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., the Student Alumni Association will host its annual Show Me the Money event at the Hinckley Alumni and Visitors’ Center. Topics being covered include financial planning, budgeting, investing and buying a home.
“Students will leave with at least a basic knowledge of important financial skills that will help them as soon as they leave the university,” Jared Colton, president of the BYU Student Alumni Association said. “The event is a tradition; we have done it for a number of years now.”
Three BYU faculty members, Bryan Sudweeks, Criag Israelson and Kay Stice, are the schedule presenters. Each speaker will present about his financial area of expertise. Sudweeks is a professor of finance, Israelseon is a professor in the School of Family Life and Israelson Stice is a professor in the School of Accountancy.
The event is free but students and alumni need to register at alumni.byu.edu by following the appropriate links. Light refreshments will be included.
