Student debt ($1.6T) exceeds credit card ($1.0T) and automobile ($1.1T) debt as the largest non-mortgage debt in America. With this course I seek to create a freshmen savvy with budgets, wise with investments, and frugal with saving. Each student will produce a hypothetical balanced budget. Each student will also be given a hypothetical $10,000 dollars to invest as they choose for the 8 weeks. Each student will understand the power of compound interest. I will try to have a financial adviser speak to the class. The literacy, interaction, and university resource course requirements can be met through group projects, library/essay assignments, and peer assessment.
