Financial Tips From Our Graduate Assistant

When I first started college four years ago, I thought I had prepared myself enough (well as much as a first generation college student could anyway), but I soon realized that I was lacking knowledge when it came to finances. The only knowledge I had about finances was from my parents, but I didn’t know how to translate that into my college experience. I remember walking into the Financial Aid office knowing that I had to take out a loan, but I was clueless about how loans worked and that scared me a little. Thankfully, a Financial Aid Counselor was able to explain to me the basic knowledge of how loans and scholarships worked and how they would be applied to my account. After this instant, I took it upon myself to become self-sufficient by learning about all the different resources on campus in case I needed any other assistance. This experience taught me about advocacy and how important that is.
