LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – The Financial Literacy Program at Eastern Oregon University is set to host a dozen hands-on and interactive workshops in May and June covering various topics from identity theft to budgeting tips.
The next featured session is on “Theft and Social Media: Is Your Identity Safe Online?” Tuesday, May 19, from 4-5 p.m. All workshops will be held in the Multicultural Center computer lab on the second floor of the Hoke Union Building.
Students attending one or more workshops may enter a raffle for $500 toward their tuition at EOU. Each time they attend, their odds of winning increase. The winning entry will be drawn June 11 at the last workshop.
As student debt surpasses credit card debt across the nation, EOU’s new Financial Literacy Program Coordinator Naomi Tuinstra is designing a custom program that meets students where they are and builds their skills along the way.
“The program is intended to support the whole student as they navigate the complexities of financial aid and personal finances,” Tuinstra said. “The workshops are designed to meet the needs of all of EOU’s students, from those coming to us from high school who are on their own financially for the first time, to those deciding to obtain their degree a bit later in life and have a different set of financial obligations and priorities.”
Tuinstra also encourages EOU faculty and staff to attend workshops if they are able, as financial literacy is shown to be most effective when it is a collaborative effort across campus. View the full schedule with dates and times.
