What students have said ....
In response to the question “What was the most valuable part of the Making Cents of Life After College event for you?”:
"The most valuable part of the event for me was the savings event. It showed me that it's important to save money monthly and to just set it up that 10% of my salary goes to my savings automatically. Another thing is to set up my retirement plan early on even if 65 seems far away."
"Learning how to budget and measuring the importance of everything you spend your money on.Just looking into the cost of everything my freshman year is helpful."
"Learning about the average monthly payment for my loans."
"The most valuable part of the event was seeing the end results based on the career path I chose and my way of living. It was interesting to get a realistic idea of how life will be after I graduate from SUNY Oneonta. "
