Hiram College students are invited to attend a financial literacy workshop “Student Loans 101,” at 11:45 a.m. on Oct. 30 2014, in Dix Dining Hall. Andrea Caputo, of Director of Financial Aid at Hiram College, will lead the talk. This workshop is part of a series of workshops taking place this semester to educate students in financial literacy.

The workshops are part of the course “Money, Money, Money: Financial Survival Skills,” team-taught by Liz Okuma, vice president and dean of students, and Caputo. This workshop, however, is open to the entire student body.

“Finances are a big concern for college graduates, and our goal is to educate our student body about things like credit score and student loans, which already have a big impact upon their lives,” Caputo said. “Being financially smart now, as college students, makes for fewer surprises once they graduate.”

This is the final workshop of the series.
