UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — In early May, most students will be leaving their Penn State campus and looking toward their planned summer events. For many, that includes a summertime job.

The Financial Literacy and Wellness Center at Penn State can help students make the most of the precious dollars they earn over the summer, as well as prompt deeper questions about attitudes toward money and building a life of financial security.

The Financial Literacy and Wellness Center has multiple sessions open to everyone scheduled during April, which is also National Financial Literacy Month.

On Monday, April 23, and Thursday, April 26, the center will be hosting financial literacy overview sessions. Staff will provide information on the importance of financial literacy and how to establish financial freedom. The April 23 sessions are slated for 4 to 5 p.m. and 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Business Building Room 110. The April 26 session is scheduled for 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. in Outreach Building Room 119.

The center also will be presenting sessions specifically geared toward saving and investing from 4 to 5 p.m. and 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on April 25 in Business Building Room 110. Another session will be held from 11 a.m. to noon on April 26 in Outreach Building Room 119.

The saving and investing sessions are open to everyone and will focus on the complex world of saving and investing for the future. No longer can workers rely on company pensions, social security and saved cash for emergencies. Instead, the modern worker will need to take advantage of complex financial products and protect their assets.
