MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

College is a time of new found freedom for many students. But that can spell trouble if that freedom applies to personal finances too. Students need to understand basic money management skills such as living within a budget and handling credit and debt. A solid financial foundation can lead to a lifetime of financial success.

We were joined on the show by Patsy Collins. Patsy Collins is the Director of the Student Money Management Center at Sam Houston State University.  She is an Accredited Financial Counselor and is the Association for Financial Counseling Planning and Education’s - Counselor of the Year.  She is also a contributing author to Dr. Jay Liebowitz’ book Financial Literacy Education:  Addressing Student, Business, and Government Needs.  Patsy doesn’t believe that graduates from Sam Houston State University should live paycheck to paycheck.  With that goal in mind, the Student Money Management Center teaches the students at Sam Houston State University how to deliberately and intentionally aggregate wealth so they don’t just survive – they thrive!
