Congressman John Barrow (GA-12)
encourages students to budget wisely.
Congressman Barrow hosted a financial literacy
seminar at GRU on Tuesday, helping students learn the best ways to save and
spend their money. Bankers, financial groups, and even counselors were there
advising students about their future.
"It's very easy to get in
over your head before you ever get out the door and that would be a huge
mistake," said Congressman Barrow. Like a lot of people, I borrowed my way
through law school but the loan that I had to pay off back in the old days was
less than the loan that I had for my very first car. Today it's the other way around;
you can have a whole lot more student debt before you ever get your first car
much less your first home."
Congressman Barrow also spoke to students at East
Georgia State College in Statesboro.
