Transcript of Finance

Young adults are careless and feel that things like fraud and scams will not happen to them.
Scammers are all over, they are even on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
College students are not spending or saving money wisely.
Students are more worried about what their friends are spending and trying to keep up with what they are buying.
They are not looking at their bank account.

Personal Finance: Why College Students Need to Stay Informed
Stage Four
Classes could be offered on campus that inform students on how to avoid fraud
Personal finance could be made a requirement for all students
Seminars to fight fraud could be held on campus
Media coverage against fraud (Flyers, newsletters, radio, etc.)
Use social media to inform each other of previous fraud experience
Stage Six
*Classes more affordable, offer incentive for going to seminar or filling out a quiz, offer free financial help for students.

*Give these students surveys to fill out and pay them.
-By them doing this it will have positive feedback on what needs to be changed.

- College Students + Money intensives = No brainer!!!

*We would make every school have a financial adviser for the students to help them.

Stage Eight
Fraud is a major issue, especially college kids
Colleges should make personal finance a prerequisite
Informing them could make them less susceptible to fraud
Always applicable knowledge
Distribution of surveys can expose their knowledge-- reading fine print, knowing what you're signing for,budgeting, not exposing personal info, etc.
Faculty and other administrators can review the success rate
Stage Five
Students will be more aware of spending habits and will be able to identify scams
May not absorb all the information
Students will be more aware of where their money is going and can create a personal budget
May be misleading because of inaccurate recording
Seminars are a great way to raise awareness about fraud
Students believe it will never happen to them so they will not attend
Radio, Newspapers and Social Media can be a great way to inform a wide range of students
Social media is a quick and inexpensive way to inform students of upcoming events and seminars pertaining to personal finance and fraud.
Stage 3
College students aren’t spending/saving money wisely.
Potential for destroying the chance at good credit, turned away for loans.
College students do spend money but they have to budget since they’re spending so much on college tuition.
College students have to be careful on what they spend and what they spend their money on. The parents think that it’s their child’s own decision on what they spend and how much they spend if they are using their own money and have to be independent.
The End
