*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
