Workshop to focus on student loans

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- “Getting Student Loans” will be presented from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6, in Foster Auditorium, 102 Paterno Library. The workshop will help participants identify the difference between a variety of student loans, including Federal Perkins Loans and Direct Loans, and determine how much to borrow. It will also clarify the steps to take before borrowing, reveal the relationship between future income and current loan borrowing, and teach how to forecast a future budget.

Presenter Daad Rizk is a Penn State financial literacy coordinator, and the presentation is part of the Money Counts: a Financial Literacy Series, a collaborative effort of the Penn State Commission for Adult Learners and the University Libraries.
