Despite that goal, if you asked students what it takes to buy a house, save for a car, pay for college, know their credit score, plan for retirement or explain why they should be saving money now, just as at any high school, you might be faced with blank stares.

“In school, you don't learn these kinds of things,” admits Tesslyn Arrighi, 17, a junior from Bridgewater.

End the Cycle

News & Events

Members of the BSU Buddies, Galvir Romero, Meghan Kinney and Abby Tremblay, all members of the class of 2016, held an event in the RCC to get people to refrain from using what they refer to as the r-word.

The r-word refers to people with mental retardation, which was once used as an acceptable medical term, but in today’s society is considered slang that degrades and insults. The trio asked students to sign a pledge as part of the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign indicating they would stop using the r-word.
