The Financial Reality Fair is a unique way to gain hands-on experience where, after identifying your career and starting salary, you will be provided with a budget sheet requiring you to live within your monthly salary while paying for basics such as housing, utilities, transportation, clothing, and food – and some not-so-basics like entertainment and travel.
Along the way, there are many temptations for additional spending, and you will learn to balance your wants and needs to potentially live on your own. After you have visited the various booths covering components of independent living (think Game of Life), you will spin the “Wheel of Reality” to see which one of life’s surprises you encounter to add or subtract from your bottom line. You will then balance your budget, and sit down with a financial counselor to review your standing.
When: April 19th 1:00 p.m.
Where: Union Ballroom
Why: To go gain a better understanding of earnings, spending, budgeting and savings for Life after La Salle
