Credit Card Buzz

While

Longwood University students may be bombarded with credit card

offers when returning to school this year, one of those credit

card companies is interested in getting them to use their cards

wisely.

Longwood,

a public, 3700-student university in Farmvile, Virginia, has

teamed up with Capital One to offer a college financial education

program called MoneyWi$e University. MoneyWi$e University focuses

on the basics of budgeting, using credit wisely and making responsible

financial decisions.

"For

many students, the college years are the first experiences they

have living on their own and handling the responsibility of

managing money," said Kerstin M. Soderlund, Longwood's director

of leadership and new student programs.

"Providing

students with the financial skills they need during their college

years will better-prepare them to make good financial decisions

throughout their lives," said Diana Don Colby, director

of financial education at Capital One. "And we are very

pleased that our MoneyWi$e University program can play a role."

Other

MoneyWi$e University program partners include: Washington State

University, Boston University, The University of Alabama, St.

Francis University, and the University of South Florida.
