FSoS Mad Money workshop gives undergrads a reality check

Joyce Serido, associate professor and extension specialist in Family Social Science, assisted by the Department’s Peer$ Mentors, gave undergrads a reality check in personal finance during a “Mad City Money” workshop Wednesday, April 10.

Despite the snowfall, about 20 students took advantage of the free workshop that simulated real life with all its choices – cars, housing, food, clothing, child care and entertainment. The workshop helps students build skills and acquire strategies that will help them launch successfully after graduation.
