"I am really learning a lot in the course about financial planning and money management. I want to say that the information I learned from the credit report was very valuable. Before taking the course, I didn't have any knowledge about how to check my credit report or open an IRA. This Monday I opened my first Money Market IRA account and paid off a debt. My plan for now is to deposit 25 dollars from every paycheck into my IRA account. I feel so good about this, and I am thankful for this class." Stephanie Taylor, ECON 1005, Family Economics and Household Development student
