For many students, college is the first opportunity to live on your own, make your own decisions and manage your own money. Away from the watchful eye of mom and dad, there’s no one to see if you’re eating pizza at midnight or wearing dirty socks. Talk about fun, freedom and self-discovery! However, if you’re not careful, the habits you develop in college can follow you the rest of your life; especially when it comes to your finances.
If you think learning to manage your money can wait until graduation, you’re wrong! The earlier you develop healthy money habits, the better. Don’t wait, start now!
