Reality Fairs:

The Financial Reality Fair is a  hands on experience where students, after identifying their career choice and starting salaries, are provided a budget sheet requiring them to live within their monthly salary while paying for basics such as housing, utilities, transportation, clothing and food.  Of course, there are many temptations for additional spending and students must learn to balance their wants and needs to live on their own.  After they have visited all the booths, students will balance their budget, and then sit down with a financial counselor to review their standing.  The Fair is a unique opportunity for each student to experience some of the financial challenges they will face when they start life on their own.

An important component to a responsible financial lifestyle is saving.  In the Financial Reality Fair experience, students are encouraged to save a minimum of 10% of their income, placing 3% in a long term retirement investment, and 8% in a shorter term investment.  The Financial Counselors explore the importance of planning for future needs and preparing for future financial challenges through savings. The Fair will tempt students to spend their income on “fun”, the Financial Counselors will bring the focus back to saving and thrift practices.
