Financial Seminar Returns to MSU

Posted: Updated:

High School students from around the area received a financial education outside of the classroom today.

Town and Country Credit Union's fifth annual SMRT$ Seminar returned to Minot State University for a day of free seminars and activities centered around finances.

Students learned about building budgets, keeping track of money and financial aid.

A group of MSU students spoke to the high school audience and offered their own financial advice.

One SMRTZ seminar organizer says the information can give high school seniors the tools they need for the future.

(Shannon Webster, Town & Country Credit Union)"Personal finance is so important to understand at any age level and we think it's really important for seniors in high school because they're about to leave the home, they're going to be getting their first apartment, you know, having to pay all of their bills on their own. So, it's important for them to have an understanding of budgeting, credit, loans, all of those things."

The SMRT$ Seminar will also be held in Fargo this year at NDSU.

That seminar is coming up in December.
