The Metropolitan Community College-Maple Woods Disability Support Services (DSS) and Financial Aid offices jointly sponsored a financial literacy event, “Take Control of Your Financial Well-Being,” on March 6 and would like to share highlights.
Students met to play simulated games designed to create a workable budget/savings plan. Participants were connected with online resources to help them track expenses with the goal of keeping “fiscally fit” for 2018 and beyond. Refreshments and gift cards were a hit! One lucky student, Victoria Ward, won an e-reader (Kindle).
