Join us for Banking 101

October 18, 2010

You've made a plan for your life. You're here to make it happen. We're here to help.

Success outside the classroom

Each year, more students drop out of college because of debt than because of academic failure. The University is committed to helping students build a solid financial foundation so your only worry is in the classroom. As part of this commitment, the University's RamCard Office, in partnership with First National Bank, is offering Banking 101 sessions on the third Tuesday of every month.

Banking 101 is open to anyone on campus. Stop by the First National Bank branch located in the Lory Student Center between 4 and 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 19 to ask your banking questions. Bankers will be available to provide answers and the tools you need for financial success. Learn to make deposits and withdrawals, create a budget, or balance your account.

If Banking 101 leaves you wanting more, check out our financial workshops. They’re offered free to your club or organization, just tell us when and where, then pick your topic:
