Managing Your Money While Studying Aroad

It’s no secret that studying abroad can be one of the best college experiences you can have.  But often, in all the excitement leading up to and during your time abroad, one aspect of the trip is overlooked: how to manage your money while in a foreign country.  Even minor financial details can cause a major headache in a strange new country if you don't know what to expect or what to do.

In this workshop, I will be discussing the things you can do and options to consider when it comes to your personal finances while studying abroad.
