Personal finance is 80 percent behavior and 20 percent head knowledge.  Taking control of your money can help you avoid huge money mistakes down the road.  Your financial decisions have long-term consequences.  Learning how to budget, save, spend wisely, avoid debt, and give are the keys to success.  Studies show that money problems are the leading cause of college students dropping out of school and of divorce in America.  The purpose of Foundations in Personal Finance is to empower students with the knowledge and application of basic financial principles so they can make sound financial decisions for life.
