Find realistic answers to these questions and more at Making Cent$ of Life After College! The Making Cent$ team is holding this fun and interactive event in the Otsego Grill in Morris Conference Center on December 1 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. It is open to all seniors and we are asking that everyone preregister using the Making Cent$ of Life After College Preregistration Form before Noon on November 30th. We will accept walk-ins to the extent possible, but there may be a wait.

During preregistration you will indicate your career choice (or if you are unsure let us know that) and where you hope to live. We will determine a realistic starting salary and during the event guide you through the different types of expenses you can expect when out on your own (think taxes, student loan repayment, food, entertainment, and more!). When you complete the event you’ll enter to win one of several prizes. By participating, you will also receive 100 points towards the 500 needed to earn a Making Cent$ Graduation Cord. We expect it will take no more than 50 minutes for a pre-registered student to complete the event. Questions? Email

The Making Cent$ Team has heard from many students that financial stress can be a concerning problem. This is true for our students and others across the country. Our Financial Wellness Program is offering a great opportunity for students who want to build their money management skills. If you are concerned that your finances might not last through the semester or if you’d just like to manage your spending better, check out this savvy budgeting opportunity. As an added bonus you will receive LEAD credit for attending a Build a Savvy Spending plan meeting.

As a borrower of federal student loans, we can help you navigate the transition into repayment and answer any questions you may have about your borrowing. We are offering virtual, one-on-one appointments with a Making Cent$ team member to review your loan history, interest rates, servicer set up, and discuss the repayment process. Student loan debt can cause stress and be intimidating, but we are here to guide you through the next steps after college. Please take advantage of this opportunity to meet with us briefly so we can set you up for success after graduation. Our Student Loan Checkups are also another opportunity for you to earn LEAD credit. We look forward to meeting with you!

What is your "money personality?" Join the Making Cent$ team to gain a new perspective on your financial behaviors. Your money habits and attitudes influence your life and financial choices. Talking about money can be difficult, but with Money Personalities, there are no right or wrong answers. Instead, you will see both the advantages and challenges of your own money personality. The Making Cent$ team will walk you through a series of questions and provide you with a confidential "score" in various categories. Then, we will briefly share some thoughts to support you in a productive financial discussion to instigate real-life changes. We hope you will join us to gain some insight about your financial habits, making connections, and have fun! LEAD credit is available for participants! If you would like to schedule a session of Money Personalities please email us at
