Computer Systems Institute welcomes current students and visitors to the Elgin Campus on Tuesday, August 26th for a financial education workshop with presenter and local State Farm Agent, David Im. The session, titled “A Slice of L.I.F.E.” (Lessons in Financial Education), will focus on financial topics including banking, budgeting, and managing credit. During the workshop, these financial topics will be related to pizza in order to make them understandable to various audiences. David will also introduce strategies that attendees can use to plan for the future, save effectively, and balance their short-term needs and interests with long-term goals.
Anyone in the Elgin community, including current and prospective CSI students, is welcome to attend this free workshop... CSI will provide complimentary lunch to the first 20 CSI students who attend. The event will start at 11:45 a.m. in Lab C at Computer Systems Institute’s Elgin campus, located at 400 Airport Road in Elgin, IL.
This financial workshop is made possible by the State Farm Bank Make It Possible campaign, which has allowed agents like David to put on several financial education workshops in the area. As a State Farm Agent based in Elgin, David is a leader in the community and enjoys helping individuals make financially savvy choices and build better futures.
