Financial February Event to Equip Students for Post-Graduation Financial Success on February 20

Screen shot 2014-02-20 at 4.57.12 PMTonight at 9:30 p.m. in Heath 109, Vanguard University’s Office of Transitions is hosting “Financial February”, an event to help juniors and seniors learn how to succeed financially after graduation.

Student loan payments, bills and mortgages are areas of financial life that most juniors and seniors will experience in the near future. Many students have little to no experience handling personal finances with these factors included. This is where financial guru and professor Ed Westbrook, J.D. is coming to the rescue.  Through speaking and worksheets, he will encourage, advise and equip students to be financially successful, not only during their first few post-graduation years, but also for the rest of their lives.

Senior transitions student workers Madison Spikes and Justine Walters are the event creators and coordinators. Spikes conceived the idea when reflecting on graduation’s rapid approach and the many financial realities of adulthood soon to come. Spikes said that professor Westbrook’s mindset in relation to finances is that “you can do what you want to do if you set yourself up for it.” Attending this event is one of the first ways juniors and seniors can begin to set themselves up for financial success.

Along with priceless financial advice, the event will have 5 raffles and various resource handouts for students. So, come out and enjoy an evening of free advice that could change your financial future forever.
