A special Money Smart Week event will be held in Timothy J. Hyland Hall on Thursday, April 27.

Albouras is a Financial Services Professional with Summit Credit Union. He will be available in the Hyland Hall lobby from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to meet with students and discuss their personal finance concerns. During the lunch and learn session in room 4303 at 1:00 p.m., he will present Unlocking credit reports and scores: Your key to your financial success. Refreshments will be provided.

The information within individuals’ credit reports significantly affects their ability to borrow money. Albouras will explain how to read a credit report and what the information means. He will also explain good credit, bad credit and how to improve credit scores. Attendees will be able to obtain a free copy of their personal credit report.

“Money Smart Week is all about helping students take charge of their personal finances,” shares Naomi Schemm, new Reference and Instruction Librarian for the College of Business and Economics. “It’s an important part of ‘adulting’ in 2017, but it can be an intimidating subject. With informative presentations, Q&A sessions, and free financial tools, we hope to help students take control.”

There will be several other campus events focused on financial literacy, open to the entire campus including faculty and staff. Learn more about 2017 Money Smart Week at UW-Whitewater.

Money Smart Week is a national campaign first established in 2002 by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago to help people manage their money more effectively. The Money Smart Week website shares videos, articles, tools, and games designed to help consumers developer their personal finance tool kit.
