Winter Break on a Budget

Winter break is a time for college students to take some time off from their studies and catch up with family and friends. We visited Susquehanna University to find out how students enjoy their time off without breaking the bank.

Students were most looking forward to taking a break from classes, catching up on sleep, and spending time with loved ones. When it comes to spending quality time with friends and family without spending too much, they had some great ideas – from Secret Santa gift exchanges and movies at home to DIY crafts and gifts.

If you’re looking for a way to save for winter break expenses, like travel and gifts, throughout the year, check out our Christmas Savings Share to help you save year-round or download the PSECU Savings App for a way to make saving easy and fun.

We'd love to talk with you about bringing our financial know-how messages and free financial education seminars to your campus, workplace or community organization. Email walletworks@psecu.com or call 717.777.2189 for more information.
