Phi Beta Lambda holds personal finance workshop

Business - Finance Workshop

BUIES CREEK – The Campbell Business School Phi Beta Lambda chapter hosted a personal finance workshop to aid students in learning about and better managing their own finances on Nov. 9. The workshop, which more than 30 students attended, included presentations by First Bank Commercial Loan Portfolio Manager Collin Peregoy and 2017 graduate and First Bank Commercial Loan Assistant Bennett Johnson. Topics included check booking, financial advisement, mortgages, and other pertinent issues.

“So many young people don’t understand the importance of maintaining a good credit score, spending wisely and investing for retirement,” said Campbell Business Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Dr. Edward Fubara, who also serves as the advisor for Phi Beta Lambda. “These basics can really impact their lives in the future.”

Attendees took part in an informal discussion on saving money, credit, and investing for the future. The event also provided an opportunity for students to network within themselves, as well as with faculty and staff members.

Phi Beta Lambda is a national organization that promotes business and leadership skills among college students. Campbell Business student Brady Frampton is president of the university chapter on campus.
