The LSU Cale P. Smith Student Financial Management Center is thrilled for our brand new location in the LSU Olinde Career Center of the LSU Student Union! This facility will further allow us to engage students in financial literacy education and advise students to become financially responsible. Financial literacy education plays an important role in teaching students how to properly create and maintain a budget, form disciplined spending habits and set financial goals. Students will gain access to these lessons through our personal one-on-one advising, First Year Finance programming and any additional campus activities related to our office. The LSU SFMC also offers Transit, a free online course requirement which first year students can use to test their financial knowledge through mock scenarios.
Students and famalies interested in the LSU SFMC can continue financial education by accessing our online resources at sfmc.lsu.edu or our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/lsusfmc. Emily Burris Hester serves as coordinator for the office and her associate, Raylea Barrow, serves as the current graduate assistant. Our office, 158BB Student Union, has appointments available on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
This Thursday, September 18th, the Student Financial Management Center will be holding their first event of the year. Encourage your student to geaux check it out at Free Speech Alley!
