Student Financial Literacy Workshop

WRITTEN BY OLIVIA KEHOE (BSC President)

A message from the BSC Alumni Association:

Our Alumni Board is interested in creating a workshop to educate BSC students on retirement and savings options and processes to encourage financial literacy early on. We're also considering a financial component in the form of a scholarship. We would appreciate it if you could fill out this brief Google form (How to survive late stage capitalism!) to give us feedback on the contents of the workshop and what time(s) would be best!!

Thank you,

BSCAA
