Get Your Finances Figured Out Free at BSU
Experts say it's one of the biggest "issues" in relationships and one of the biggest stressors in life: Money. Now BSU will be hosting a free financial seminar for young adults in March.
Mountain America Credit Union will be teaming up with Young Money University and Boise State to offer the free financial success seminar on the campus on March 10th and 11th.
CBS 2 spoke with Mountain America Credit Union and found that "four out of five Gen Z members ages 18-21 say money is a leading cause of stress."
Most of us understand that stress and good habits made early can help avoid decisions that lead to further stress and life-long financial struggles.
For college students financial stresses are often cited as a reason students do not complete their programs and graduate. ScholarshipAmerica.org notes that 32% of students say they have neglected their studies "at least sometimes" because of money concerns.
Poor management of tight resources can also lead to housing and food insecurity or the accumulation of large amounts of debt that can take years or even decades to pay off. Even if the results are the most extreme, stress, anxiety, and depression are commonplace.
The seminars, tough targeted to the college-age young adult segment, are open to anyone. They will be held March 10th at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. and March 11th at 12 p.m. and 1 p.m.
They are free and will take place in the Imaginations Lab inside the Micron Business and Economics Building (1129 Euclid Avenue).
