Student Financial Education Center Opens For Fall

The Student Financial Education Center is officially open for business. The SFEC, created collaboratively by UPUA and University Libraries, was founded back in January.

The SFEC, open for its second semester, will provide finance education on budgeting, credit, and student loans, and courses will be taught by students who are trained in the area of personal finance. The SFEC has an office at 309A Paterno Library. You can schedule an appointment appointment through their website or by e-mail.

“I’m excited that the SFEC is open for business for its second straight semester,” said Student Director of the SFEC, Tom Orr. “I hope that we continue to educate more and more students, and hopefully we become a well-known resource on campus.”

If you want to stop by during office hours rather than scheduling an appointment, the SFEC schedule is as follows:

Monday/Wednesday: 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., 1:15 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday: 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., 1:15 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Thursday: 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., 1:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m.
Friday to Sunday: CLOSED

If you’re already an expert in finance and would rather be educating fellow students than being advised, the SFEC is accepting peer educator applications. You can visit the SFEC office to pick one up.
