Selecting a Major and Career for a Sound Financial Future
11/29/2017 (new)

Many students enter college not knowing what they want to study or what their career interests are. It is common for college freshmen and sophomores to have undeclared majors. Many students change their majors throughout their college career, and for a variety of reasons. It is not surprising that they might decide on a different career than they had in mind originally. Selecting your major is something to be passionate about. You also have to have the aptitude. When making your final decision, consider the economic value of your major. How much can you earn? Will you be able to live where you want? Will your education and internship opportunities lead where you want? | FCS5-467

This brings great financial strain, possibly for decades to come. | FCS5-466

Planning Your Digital Estate
8/8/2017 (new)

With so much vital information stored online, the nature of estate planning has changed.

Email accounts and online retail accounts may house critical personal information that you may wish securely kept. Unfortunately, planning for these kinds of assets is typically neglected by individuals and their advisors. In order to ensure the safety and security of this kind of digital information, you will want to create a digital estate plan. | FCS5-465
