Travis Bagley, a second- year student at Feather River College, is one of 10 students nationwide selected to bring Are You Credit Wise?, a na- tional campus-based finan- cial literacy program, to cam- pus. The Are you Credit Wise? program was developed with the support of national stu- dent leaders to educate stu- dents on money management skills at a critical point in their financial lives. Since college students are typically more receptive and inclined to act upon information if it comes from a peer, Are You Credit Wise? has proven ef- fective because it uses a peer- to-peer teaching model. "MasterCard is confident that Travis' talent, energy and passion for financial lit- eracy will be an asset to his peers at FRC by strengthen- ing their budgeting and cred- it management know-how," said Thomas Gannon, vice president of public policy at MasterCard Worldwide. "MasterCard has a long commitment to increasing fi- nancial literacy rates among college students and is proud of the progress Are You Cred- it Wise? has made to bring personal finance skills to young people." Bagley, who will lead the semester-long campaign at Feather River College, will teach his fellow Golden Eagle students how to responsibly manage their finances and or Are you better at money management than a college student? Weigh your total income vs. expenses each semester so you know what you can af- ford, and can identify places to cut back if needed. Try to avoid putting educa- tion expenses on your credit card. Your interest rate will likely be higher than a stu- dent loan. If you can't afford it, don't purchase it with a credit card. Pay more than the minimum balance on your credit card, or pay it off completely each month. Your credit score isn't on your credit report and typi- cally costs a fee to obtain. In- stead, check your credit re- port annually via the govern- ment-approved website an- and correct any inaccuracies. build good credit history. Throughout the fall semes- ter, Bagley will lead a variety of activities including con- ducting interactive presenta- tions and workshops, distrib- uting educational materials and working with campus or- ganizations and administra- tors to promote financial lit- eracy among Feather River College students. "This is especially impor- tant in California because as the economy fell, tuition soared. College students were put in a tight spot financially, which led many to spend and borrow irresponsibly," said Bagley. "We can't afford to bargain with our future." All information distributed by the 10 interns is strictly educational and devoid of any marketing material. ! 4 Students in dramaworks play a get-to-know-you game at their first meeting Thursday, Sept. 16.
