Are you a mostly broke college student? Even if you don't fit the stereotype, this presentation will have information that is dangerous to ignore. Do you know if it is safer to use a debit card or a credit card when shopping online? Do you know what identifying details you should absolutely NOT put on Facebook? Do you know how to tell the difference between an employment scam and a legitimate job opportunity? Do you know how to put a security freeze on your credit reports? Come find out why you are lucky to be a student and a consumer in Indiana. You will learn about important information and services that will be useful for the rest of your life. You will even want to share this information with your friends and family!-Christopher Wilson
