Student-Athlete Development Holds Financial Literacy Workshop

On Monday, Oct. 29, Clemson Student-Athlete Development held a financial literacy workshop for all senior student-athletes. Each senior was presented with an example life situation, which included details about a possible profession, income, spouse, children, etc., and then visited various merchants to purchase items such as housing, utilities, transportation, meals, clothing, etc.

Under the direction of the staff from Founders Federal Credit Union, and with the help of staff volunteers from several different departments within Clemson Athletics, the student-athletes learned to make a spending and savings plan and balance a budget, and also picked up other valuable tips from working through their example financial situation.
