"I'm learning so much information about personal financing. I believe its one of the
most important life skills that someone needs to have. I believe its one of the few
classes that I will actually save my notes because it will be looked at again many
times in the future. This is the most important times in life to develop important
habits with your money so it will become an automatic skill when we get into the real
world with more financial responsibilities. I'm an ESS major so setting personal goals
in life is a big thing for me and I know goal setting with personal finances is a
very important thing too. I hope to use both in what ever career I have in the future.
This is going to be a great minor!"
