RUSU’s Advice Service are hosting ‘Money Week’ from the 16th- 20th March, with the aim to show how you can live a healthy lifestyle on a tight budget.

Throughout the week, we will have stalls located in the lower corridor offering advice, activities and giveaways for students:

Money Saving Monday

Our Advisers have been cooking up a storm in the past few weeks to compile a list of the best and healthiest recipes that won’t break the bank. We are finally debunking the idea that eating healthily cannot be done on a tight, student budget. Come along to feed your interest in good food and finances.

Wellness Wednesday

Are your finances getting you down? Come along to our Wellness Wednesday Stall to get some financial peace of mind while decorating some cacti pots to take home with you! RUSU’s Money Adviser, Barbara, will be providing helpful resources and referrals to help you get on top of your money troubles.

Freebie Friday

All good things in life are free! Take part in our Money Week Tombola for a guaranteed prize. In the hope of leading you down the path of financial stability and environmental consciousness, our prizes are all money saving and eco-friendly. Expect thermal water bottles, reusable coffee mugs and much more.
