A workshop on school-related debt and other financial issues facing UC Davis students is planned for 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, in the Student Community Center multipurpose room on campus.
Topic will include having good credit, with a special section on ways to avoid increasing credit card debt while in school; personal finance; developing a budget; philanthropic goals; and paying off school loans.
The event is free. Pizza and drinks will be provided — along with piggy banks for the first 30 students to arrive.
The UC Davis Senior Class Challenge and River City Bank are hosting the event, which will be taught by 2012 UCD graduate Bryen Alperin and School of Management student Yulia Yevsukova. Both are credit analysts at River City Bank, according to a news release.
The Senior Class Challenge is a chance for graduating seniors to support current and future Aggies. The 2013 class is being challenged to donate $20.13 to the UCD Annual Fund, which directs money to areas of need on campus, or We Are Aggie Pride, which provides emergency funding for students.
