Don’t Get Crazy With Credit Cards

Credit card companies love to prey on naïve college students who may have never had a credit card before. Don’t get crazy with these cards—this IS NOT free money. Only use it for emergencies. Also, be responsible with the money that you have. Our advice: Seek financial planning help with your financial aid office.
