ISU library presents:"Death by Credit Cards: Essentials for Survivals"

February 17, 2009

"Death by Credit Cards: Essentials for Survivals," is the focus of an Indiana State University Cunningham Memorial Library Town and Gown discussion concerning the ever growing fear of debt in America and what individuals can do to help themselves.

Since Americans are no strangers to credit cards, especially when it comes to debt, this discussion is meant to teach everyday changes that can be made in order to ensure credit card survival.

On Tuesday, Feb. 24, the second Town and Gown event will be held in the library's Events Area at 5:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The Town and Gown panel discussion, featuring Pete Piazza, vice president of lending at the Indiana State University Credit Union, will follow the short ISU Business student-made video entitled: "Cash Rules."

Aside from the video, there will be two speakers. William Wilhelm, program coordinator of ISU's business, education, information, and technology, will speak about the student video and about credit card management in general. The other speaker, Amro Maher, assistant professor of marketing will speak about consumer behavior.

The event is free and open to the public. Invite a friend and come hear about a topic of great interest in light of today's economy.

Light refreshments will be served.
