The Westminster College "Get Real!" series concludes Thursday, April 16, with "Investing after College - Goals, Opportunities, and Avenues" presented by David Smith, Westminster assistant professor of accounting.
The session will deal with the need for investing; how to create an investing mentality; how to spot investment opportunities and avoid investment traps; what types of investments to purchase; and how to mix investments to obtain a high quality investment portfolio.
Sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs, the "Get Real!" series acquaints students with life after college. It provides helpful advice on financial planning; banking; medical care; consumer and personal legal matters; apartment, auto, and house hunting; getting the most out of leisure activities; and preparing for lifelong relationships.
Each session covers a different topic and runs from 12:40-1:50 p.m. in the Witherspoon Lakeview Room. Attendance is limited to 25 students, with preference given to juniors and seniors. This is the final session for the spring semester.
