The Chicago Graduate Student Association (CGSA) will be hosting a two-part Financial Education Seminar Series. Please see below for more information. 


Part 1: Just the Facts: Budget and Credit

Wednesday, November 7, 4:00 - 5:30 PM 
Ward Building, 5-230 (303 E. Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60611)

You know you should, but you just can’t stand the thought of it. No, we’re not talking about going to the dentist; we’re talking about budgeting and credit, people! If those are synonymous with putting an “L” to your forehead and deeming yourself a “budgeting and credit loser” then it’s time for you to chat with us about what budgets are, how they can benefit you, and demistifying some of the myths surrounding credit. Never fear, we'll help you scope out a budget and a budgeting tool that loves you for you, even if you hate numbers. We'll also cover what credit it is, how to make sure you're making the most of it, and tips and tricks for improving that score or keeping a great score great!
