No joke, April is Financial Literacy Month. And MSU Federal Credit Union and its campus partners have a full schedule of financial education opportunities, known as Money Smart University, planned for students starting on Monday, April 1 and running through the evening of Thursday, April 4.

The four days of financial education are part of an annual national financial literacy initiative known as Money Smart Week (MSW). MSW, started in 2002, was designed to help consumers of all demographics and income levels better manage their personal finances through presentations and events by financial institutions, community groups, government agencies, and more.

This marks the fifth year that a committee consisting of people from MSUFCU, the MSU College of Social Science, Department of Human Development & Family Studies, Department of Economics, MSU Libraries, MSU Extension, and the Office of Financial Aid have hosted MSW events on campus. Not only will all the events provide great education, but there are also opportunities to win prizes and scholarship money during Thursday night’s GeoCache & Financial Resource Fair (held in the lower level of Shaw Hall).
