An event to educate students about credit cards, this workshop explains compound interest, FICO scores, and credit reports. Students who attend the workshop learn how to comparison-shop for credit and how to understand the fine print on a credit card agreement. They also walk away with a clear understanding of how financial decisions they make today can help or hurt them in the future.
