S2B Logo Image

Every semester, Dr. Philip Tew teaches a course on financial wellness called Personal Asset Management (FIN 2013). This course is open to all students on campus regardless of major or classification. In the past 5 years, over 400 students have taken this course. The Final Project / Exam every semester is simple – create a video that encourages an incoming first-year college student to make a smart financial decision. It can be something that the student learned about in the course or something that the student learned about “the hard way” in their own personal life.

Below, you will find some of the best videos and advice for college students by college students about how they can and why they should make smart financial decisions. Click on the thumbnails below to watch. Enjoy the videos, learn, and feel free to share them on your own social media accounts!
