Question

Hello Ron,

I hope your Thursday is going well. My name is Ted and I'm reaching out on behalf of a company that works to help increase the presence of Syracuse University's Whitman Business School's online programs.

Today, I came across the Personal Finance Resources page located on the School for Champions website below: 
https://www.school-for-champions.com/finances/resources.htm

I found the page to be a highly notable compilation of financial literacy resources and wanted to quickly reach out to see if you're open to providing your students with an additional credit resource to refer to?

If so, Syracuse University has recently published an article titled "The Cost of a Bad Credit Score". The article provides information on what a credit score is, how it's calculated, and why it's important. This information is also presented in a helpful infographic at the bottom of the article. I thought this would be a valuable resource to your students as starting off one's credit on the right foot is an important step to financial literacy.

Would you be open to this additional personal finance resource on the web page?

Thank you for your consideration.

Ted - USA (28897)

Answer

Thanks for the suggested resource. I added a link to the article from the Personal Finance Resources page.

Best wishes for success in your work.

4. Type the email address you use for PayPal and click Next.
5. Select "Receive an email" so we can confirm this is your account, and click Next. Then wait to get your email.
6. Enter the 6-digit security code we sent to your email (you may need to check or junk or spam folder) and click Continue.
7. Select another way of confirming it's you, and click Next.
After going through this last security check, create a new password (type it twice) and click Update.

See I forgot my password for my PayPal account.

I hope that helps. Best wishes on getting back into PayPal.

Question

I'm going to be graduating from college at the end of this spring semester and have been trying to educate myself on financial literacy. I just wanted to say that I found your personal finance resources to be better than those of my college. The only topic that I would like to offer a suggestion about is the lack of personal finance resources that are specifically targeted to new college graduates. Since April is financial literacy month and also close to the end of the school year, it's the perfect time to provide new resources for college graduates. I’ve been doing a lot of research on this topic and have kept my favorite financial literacy resources saved in a bookmarks folder. I was thinking other students or recent graduates on your page may find them helpful as well, so I wanted to see if you'd like to check them out.

Carl - USA (28010)

Yes, I'd be interested in seeing your suggested resources to add to the site.

Question

Good morning Ron,

With a growing interest among college students to educate themselves about their unique financial situation, I thought the School for Champions might benefit from the information in our newly published 'Survival Guide to Personal Finance for College Students' — https://www.annuity.org/financial-literacy/students/. This piece - written by our Financial Literacy team at Annuity.org, provides tips for students on how to manage their finances before, during and after college. It explores questions such as “When Should I Fill Out My FAFSA?”, “How Do Student Loans Work?” and “Should I Consider Early Investing Options?”

We thought by reaching out to y'all, we could further the education about this important issue and hopefully help students feel financially secure as they enjoy the college experience. I hope you consider sharing this important resource for students with questions about their personal finances on your School of Champions' 'Personal Finance Resources' page.
