*Rationing my Refund?
Refund checks are extra funds that are left over after all school fees have been paid. These funds are the result of excess scholarships, grants, and loans. Refund checks can come in handy and students should use the extra money to purchase necessary items throughout the semester. However some students are not wise with their money and are left to live with little or no refund money by the end of the semester. Guest presenter Dean Smith will discuss the actual purpose of a refund and how students can strategize to ensure refunds are used for the right purpose.

*Living Off-Campus 101
Most students choose to live off campus after their freshman year. This is why it’s vital for students to have the resources and information needed to make an informed decision on where to live. “Living Off-Campus 101” will discuss off-campus housing search process, including questions to ask, things to consider, understanding a lease, and being a good neighbor. Students can ask questions to ECU staff, property managers, attorney, and students currently living off campus.  Students should be fully aware of their responsibility of living off-campus.
