For most students, college means freedom and fun. At the same time, the vast majority of students are also on fixed incomes and have very little experience managing money. Many of us went from living at home with practically all our financial decisions being made by our parents. Those decisions dealt with rent, groceries, phone bills and the costs that go along with socializing. No wonder money seems to slip through our fingers, and we struggle to make ends meat at the end of the month. The purpose of this presentation is to teach us how to track our spending and develop a budget that will work for us.
