Spring Courses – OFS Award Winner!

I’m out of state at a conference this week … Tomorrow I will be accepting an award on behalf of our Office for Financial Success which is being recognized by the Association of Financial Counseling and Planning Educators as the Financial Counseling Center of the Year.

A couple things I wanted to bring to your attention this week:

  • In addition to the tip being e-mailed, the tip is also posted to a blog site each week (http://ofsmizzou.org/tips/) – this is a good way to read the tip if the e-mail comes ‘garbled’ …
  • An archive of tips [sorted categorically] is available at: http://ofsmizzou.org/tips/
  • The Financial Survival & Success one-credit courses are available this spring (see below). There are NO PREREQUISITES for either class.
