#EDUC 1300: First Year Experience

This guide provides additional resources in support of the EDUC 1300 course.

General Money

Savings & Money Management

50/30/20 budget strategy:  50% of your income covers necessities (like food, gas, rent); 30% goes to optional 'fun' spending (like Netflix or vacations); and 20% goes into savings and/or debt repayments.

Student Loans & Financial Aid


You might not be in a position to manage ~investments~ yet, but you will be before you know it! Time is even more important than initial amount when you're thinking long-term growth, so don't put it off 'til middle age, and don't ignore this avenue even while you're still paying off loans.
