About ¢ommon $ense
What began as a pilot financial literacy series in 2006, ¢ommon $ense: Your money, Your Future has transformed into Georgetown University’'s premier financial literacy program. Sponsored by The George R. Houston Memorial Fund, the Office of Student Financial Services, and the Georgetown University Alumni & Student Federal Credit Union (GUASFCU), ¢ommon $ense seeks out professors in the business school, financial literacy experts, and local alumni to develop engaging and informative workshops on topics such as budgeting, credit and debt management, loans, investing, taxes, etc.
¢ommon $ense: Your money, Your future hopes to empower students with a set of skills and knowledge that would allow them to make informed and effective decisions so that they do not feel limited by their finances as college students. While in the past the program consisted of a series of 5 events that took place during the Spring semester, the program has been expanded to a full-length one workshop a month - financial literacy series beginning this Fall 2011.
