  • Students encouraged to talk about money

    In honour of National Financial Literacy Month, McMaster students have an opportunity to learn about money management and talk about it in an interactive and entertaining way.

    To get the conversation started, there was a Dollar Daze DIY gift-making session on Nov. 13 in the Student Success Centre where students learned how to use their creativity to save money. On Nov. 19, there is a workshop on holiday shopping on a budget and on Nov. 20 students have an opportunity to check out the new Mac’s Money Centre website (money.mcmaster.ca), featuring the Enriched Start video-based money management tool, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mills and Thode.

    In addition to providing information and resources on budgeting, credit, student loans, bursaries, interest rates, saving and general money management, money.mcmaster.ca includes tips, videos and quizzes designed for students.

    Learn about other National Financial Literacy Month activities and continue the conversation at Twitter @MacsMoneyCentre.
