“Financial Fitness February” at Carl Albert State College – Virtual Scavenger Hunt Planned for February 26
Carl Albert State College has developed “Financial Fitness February” to educate and promote the importance of financial literacy. Kelly Kellogg, CASC EOC Coordinator, and Jennifer Humphreys, CASC Enrollment and Retention Specialist, received a grant from CashCourse on behalf of the College that according to Humphreys provides excellent tools for students to gain knowledge regarding ways to be financially sound in decisions they face.
With the grant funding received from CashCourse, a Virtual Scavenger Hunt is planned for Wednesday, February 26. The online scavenger hunt is open to all current CASC students, and the first two students to submit a completed, correct virtual scavenger hunt form wins a $125 gift certificate to the CASC Bookstore. The Scavenger Hunt will be at https://carlalbert.edu/admissions/enrollment-center/cash-course-challenge/
Among the promotions being offered at the College for students regarding money management, Kellogg and other EOC staff members are visiting all freshman orientation classes at Carl Albert to present a financial literacy program. In addition to campus activities, Humphreys stated that she encourages students to go to the website www.cashcourse.org, where it explains “When you’re a student, it can feel like money is always tight.
