Students Can Learn to Budget Money at Financial Reality Fair Oct. 16

September 27, 2018

CNM and the Rio Grande Credit Union will be co-hosting a Financial Reality Fair Oct. 16 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on the Montoya Campus in Richard Barr Hall, Room 105.

During the fair, students will learn the basics of money management through hands-on, real-life simulations. Students will be provided a career choice and starting salary, then students create a budget and make choices to stay within the budget while paying for necessities (housing, utilities, food, transportation) and contemplating impacts of impulse purchases like a vacation or a puppy. The goal is to empower students to make sound financial decisions in the future.

Questions? Email or 224-5520. The event is free and snacks will be provided.
