Students learn life skills through Money Matters Workshop at Waynesburg U.

Feb 14, 2023

Waynesburg University students are learning valuable lessons on financial wellness through the Money Matters Workshop Series on campus.

We believe that no matter what major students are pursuing, all students will need to understand some basic personal finance concepts.”

William Stough

This eight-week series offered in the spring semester consists of weekly workshops, which cover topics including banking, cost of living, debt, legal matters, personal budgeting, retirement and more. Students from all majors are welcome and encouraged to attend.

The Money Matters Workshop Series was launched in spring 2022 with the goal of offering students across campus important life-skills resources for life after graduation.

"It is important that we help students prepare for life after their time at Waynesburg University and this is another way we can help students," said William Stough, assistant professor of business administration at Waynesburg University.

The series was designed to ensure that Waynesburg University students are prepared for both successful careers as well as the successful management of their personal finances and provides an opportunity for students of all majors to be exposed to important topics regarding finances and employment benefits.

“We believe that no matter what major students are pursuing, all students will need to understand some basic personal finance concepts,” Stough added.

Each topic during the series is presented by speakers with expert knowledge on the subject matter. Speakers have included Logan Carlise, professor of business administration at Waynesburg University; Chuck Trump, Chad Moore and Jeffrey Widdup of First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Greene County; Tom Helmick, director of human resources at Waynesburg University; and Kyle Kyper, CFP, of DSF Wealth Management Group.

In addition to the guest speakers, two students from the Department of Business Administration also participate in each session and provide their insights to students in attendance on the topics being discussed.

As the workshop continues to grow, the goal is that students across campus will not only find themselves academically prepared for their careers, but also better equipped for life as they go out into the world as young professionals.
