As part of The Georgia Way initiative, all University of Georgia student-athletes currently on campus and enrolled in summer classes participated in a Financial Literacy Program with Eric Smith on Monday.
The program included a fundamental financial literacy session for all freshman, transfers, and January enrollees followed by a session for all returners. The goal is to help student-athletes dive deeper into financial literacy. Smith provided worksheets of monthly budgets in order to stress saving and establishing credit
Eric Smith is a financial literacy coach, who also presents to rookies of the NFL. The sessions are engaging for the student-athletes, which helps them grasp the concepts presented.
