Setting Financial Goals
courtesy of SOAR

Is your dream to travel the world? Buy a house? Retire comfortably? It’s important to have financial goals, but it’s difficult to reach them without a plan. That’s why budgets are so important. Creating and sticking to a budget provides you with a realistic financial picture and a clear path to achieving these goals.  Here are the steps involved in creating a budget:

  • Estimate your take-home pay by looking at the net (after-tax) amount on your pay slips, as well as income from any other sources you might have.
  • Calculate your expenditures. Include all your typical expenses, such as transportation costs, utilities, food and clothing, and other miscellaneous spending.
  • Subtract all expenditures from revenues. If you have a surplus, aim to save as much of it as possible. If you have a deficit, you need to cut expenditures.

Celebrating Girls and Women in Sports

First observed in 1987, the first week of February is a celebration of Girls and Women in Sports which recognizes student-athletes, champion athletes, coaches, administrators, and lawmakers committed to providing equitable access to sports for all girls and women.  We are proud to honor our women student-athletes, coaches, and associates from the Athletics Department. 

You can learn more about National Girls and Women in Sports Day by visiting the Women’s Sports Foundation website.

Center for Career and Professional Development – The Importance of Internships

When you’re just starting out in an industry, it helps to have more on your resume than just your degree. Interning and having real-world, hands-on experience in a professional environment can give you a big advantage over your competition.  Handshake, our job and internship search platform, is a great tool to explore opportunities available nationwide, including internships.
Internships have become an essential tool for gaining valuable work experience before graduation.  Contact the Center for Career and Professional Development today to discuss internships and how they can fit in with your academic program and goals.  Visit them in North 103 or email them at [email protected].
If you aren’t already, make sure to follow the Center for Career and Professional Development on Instagram.  They’ll be sharing tips, resources, and reminders about all the awesome events they host weekly!
