CU steps up on universitys savings program
MANHATTAN, Kan. (11/19/07)--K-State CU, the campus credit union of Kansas State University, is helping to give a boost to a unique savings campaign for college students. Kansas State University is one of three universities in the U.S. to offer the program. Kansas State, Utah State University and Virginia Polytechnic Institute are credited with starting the Students Save Initiative, which is a part of the America Saves program. American Saves was created in 2001 to teach Americans how to save money and has helped 90,000 to date (Kansas State Collegian Nov. 1). Kansas State’s campaign is themed “Build Wealth, Not Debt.” The program educates students about finances and helps them set savings goals. About 150 students have participated in the program so far. K-State CU is the only financial institution involved with the program, but Dustin Furrey, the program’s undergraduate coordinator, said the campaign committee is looking to involve other financial institutions. K-State’s Students Save Initiative’s campaign committee members are planning to provide a progress report in May 2008. K-State CU has $3.4 million in assets.
