Free Financial Basics Workshop for College-Bound Students

Sponsored by: Connex Credit Union

College is an exciting opportunity for many teens as made evident by the crowds of eager students this time of year with shopping carts full of decorative pillows, full-length mirrors, and bulk-sized snacks. However, with the cost of a college education continually growing, it is imperative to avoid poor spending habits and unnecessary debt. Before embarking on the next phase of their educational careers, prospective students are invited to learn how to manage expenses during “Financial Basics for College-Bound Students,” a FREE seminar from Connex Credit Union as part of its ConnexCares philanthropic initiative.

You do not need to be a member of the credit union to attend this award-winning workshop. An experienced Connex Financial Advocate will provide insight on money management, credit cards, checking accounts, student discounts and more.  While the material is designed for recent high school graduates, the information is also pertinent for currently-enrolled students. 

Tuesday, August 15, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Black Rock Branch of the Bridgeport Public Library. 2705 Fairfield Ave.

While Connex encourages guests to attend in person, a webinar option is available for anyone unable to attend.

This seminar is FREE, but registration is required and can be completed by visiting connexcu.org or by calling 1-800-CR-UNION (1-800-278-6466). During this process you will select if you plan to attend in person or via webinar. The workshop is open to members and non-members of the credit union, but act fast, seats are limited.
