Jodi Kaus to head K-State's new Student Financial Planning and Counseling Center
Jodi Kaus, an expert in financial management, has been named director of K-State's new Student Financial Planning and Counseling Center.
Kaus will work directly with students to help them navigate the financial waters of the current economy and help them plan for the future.
Services provided by the Student Financial Planning and Counseling Center are free and include individual counseling and workshops on financial topics such as budgeting, understanding credit, identity-theft and investing. A peer mentoring program, where students studying personal financial planning can provide one-on-one counseling, is also in the works.
The center will be in the office of student activities and services on the ground floor of the K-State Student Union.
K-State is believed to be the first regents institution in Kansas to offer a center designed specifically to help students with personal finances.
Kaus has more than 12 years of experience in wealth management and financial planning, complemented by her legal experience and designation as a certified trust and financial adviser. She has bachelor's degrees in English and philosophy from K-State and a juris doctorate from the University of Kansas.
K-State Evening College increasing class offerings for fall semester
This fall, K-State's Evening College is set to offer classes from more than 20 K-State departments -- around a 25 percent increase in the variety of classes offered during spring, summer and fall Evening College terms in the last year.
The increase will help serve the Evening College student demographic as well as on-campus students.
Aside from providing more class options, Evening College offers students a chance to get ahead in their programs. Many classes are offered in eight-week and 12-week terms, as well as the full 16-week term, so students may be able to fit more classes into their schedules.
Evening College fall term sessions begin Aug. 24 and Oct. 19.
