 National financial expert to speak at NWTC Feb. 18


 Rodee Schneider


Between tuition payments, textbook buys and daily living expenses, most college students aren’t at risk of getting rich during their time at school.  But according to financial educator Peter Bielagus, who speaks at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College as part of their “Food for Thought” series, the cash-strapped years of college can set the stage for a lifetime of smart financial decisions. Bielagus brings his entertaining presentation “How to Put More Money in Your Pocket Today,” to NWTC’s Green Bay campus Tuesday, February 18 at 11:30​ a.m. in SC132.   The event is free and open to the public.

Bielagus provides concrete and simple strategies to help students manage their debt, control their spending, protect their identities and increase their credit. With a goal to improve students lives through financial education, Bielagus, known as “America’s Financial Educator,” uses an interactive, humorous approach to help students take control of their finances.

During the presentation, a complimentary lunch will be available for NWTC students; NWTC staff and the general public are welcome to bring their own lunches or purchase food in the Commons.
