Financial Reality Fair at HCC Wednesday, 4/21

300 Area High School Students to Attend

Hands-on Financial Education


BRUDGEPORT - Some 300 area high school students will get a hands-on dose of financial reality Wednesday, April 21 at a Financial Reality Fair at Housatonic Community College. The students will choose an occupation that interests them and research the starting salary. Then, they’ll make living choices, based on the income.  They’ll make financial decisions in areas like housing, transportation, food and clothing, insurance, entertainment and other categories, moving from station to station in the Events Center in Beacon Hall to learn about costs and options in these categories. Then, they’ll meet with financial counselors to review their spending choices and ensure that they stay within budget. The fair runs from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
