First Husker Program

This past Monday, we had the chance to participate in the new First Husker Program. This is a brand new program that the First-Year Experience and Transitions Program Office coordinated this year.  This program is for first-generation students, and over 60 participated in the program this year. Students got to move in early and go through a few days of special activities to get them ready for classes to start on Monday.  We were able to present a few sessions on Monday about money management, particularly budgeting and student loans.  We did some fun activities including a crossword competition, plinko, and a game where students had to budget their ‘money’ to buy prizes that they wanted.  We really enjoyed being able to participate and meet all of these new first-year students, and they had great questions for us!
