Arcadia's Financial Literacy Program
Turning Financial Stress Into Success
At Arcadia University, we recognize that, sometimes, being book-smart isn't enough. We know that being "financially literate" is a key component of your future success. We strive to provide you with the tools to understand basic financial concepts, money management strategies and best practices in such a way that you are empowered to make sound financial decisions which contribute to both your short-term and long-term personal financial health. That's the goal of our Common Cent$ Financial Literacy Program! Common Cent$ offers students a series of workshops and seminars throughout the year on topics listed below. Additionally, if you attend, you will automatically be entered into a drawing, winner to be picked at the close of the workshop, for a $100 Amazon gift card!!
