Our money management program, Money Doesn't Grow on Trees, is off to a great start. In September, 173 students attended a budgeting workshop.
On Oct. 14, over 90 students, staff, faculty, parents and guests of the University listened to nationally recognized speaker Nathan Dungan. Dungan talked about the role money plays in our lives, how we can develop and maintain healthy financial habits and develop a balance between sharing, saving and spending.

Additionally, any St. Kate’s student can meet with our financial counselor to discuss money management issues, including budgeting and spending plans, loan repayment options, dealing with debt collectors, credit card debt, credit report review and more.
This is a free service for all St. Kate’s students. Our goal is to help students learn healthy money management habits and avoid any money crises.
