Teach new (ARA) - Young adults learn many things over the years, but there’s one lesson they shouldn’t forget before they head to college or they set off on their own – how to manage credit. We’ve all heard stories of young adults who get in way over their heads, and often the blame falls on credit card debt. They sometimes are lured by the ability to purchase coveted items, or even simply by the short-term prospect of living more comfortably. Conventional wisdom might tell you that young adults should avoid using credit cards

altogether. But if used correctly, a credit card can help teach financial lessons, while helping them establish a good credit history. New credit card laws have also made it a must for parents to teach these lessons to their children since those under the age of 21 must show their ability to repay their debt or will be required to have a co-applicant or co-signer on the account. Whether you are a parent who is helping your children manage their first account or a responsible young adult who is considering getting a credit card, here

are a few things to consider before you get going: • Look for a card designed for someone new to credit that offers tools to learn about money management. While parents should teach their children about how a credit card works, card providers like Wells Fargo offer online credit card education materials that can be reviewed at any time. Wells Fargo also sponsors money management lessons at handsonbanking.org that are taught in classrooms and community centers across the U.S. • For students, look

graduates fiscal responsibility for a college credit card that offers zero liability for fraudulent purchases and text alerts to help manage and protect your account. • Young adults need to understand that credit cards are loans that need to be paid back. A great introductory lesson for them as they learn to manage their card is to use it to buy books or another necessary purchase. Even if mom and dad are paying for the items purchased, parents can use this as an example of how to build credit by using a credit card for a planned purchase that you can afford then paying the bill off by the due date to avoid being charged interest. • Parents may wish to schedule monthly or quarterly check-ins with their young adult to discuss how the card is being used.

Parents who worry that this will feel like prying too much into how their children are spending their money should focus only on whether payments are being made on time and whether the balance is kept in check, not on what is being purchased. Once your children demonstrate responsible use, check-ins can become less frequent, eventually disappearing altogether with good credit behavior. Building credit history is one more step in the road to independence. Lenders, landlords and employers use credit reports, so a solid credit history will help when young adults need a loan to purchase a car, rent an apartment or even find a job. Learning how to manage credit wisely today will pay off tomorrow and well into the future.

Capture the special day like a professional (ARA) - A child's graduation is a time for celebration for the whole family. And just about every family wants those moments captured for life. But we've all watched grainy, out-of-focus videos that sometimes even miss the graduate's big moment on stage. Even if you've never picked up a camera, with a few simple tips, you can make sure the family memories you capture are worth saving. No matter how state-of-theart a camera is, if you don't know how to use it, you shouldn't start learning at the big event. "Get familiar with your equipment," said Ben Gottfried, digital filmmaking

and video production instructor at the Art Institutes International Minnesota. "Read the manual, test different lighting conditions. It will increase your comfort level with the camera and make for better shots." Now that you know how to use your camera, make sure you're in a good spot to get the right shots, said Ted Long, academic director for digital filmmaking and video production, visual effects and motion graphics and Web design and interactive media at the Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg. "Get to the venue early to set up so you don't have to use the full zoom on your camera from the back of the

auditorium," he said. And keep it steady. There's nothing worse than getting a case of motion sickness while watching your family's special moments. "If you want your video to look good, use a tripod," said Patrick Roddy, academic director for digital filmmaking and video production and digital photography at the Art Institute of Tucson. If your grad is speaking at the commencement ceremony or if you want to get interviews with family members about the big day, Long advises you make sure to use an external microphone you plug into the camera instead of the one attached to the camera to ensure that your

subjects are audible. Now that you're ready to shoot, it's time to talk about what you should shoot. First, get an establishing shot, said Roddy. A wide shot of the event that shows the grads walking in, the stage and the audience will give your video context. Gottfried suggested you try to rest on a shot. Don't excessively zoom or pan and when you do decide to zoom, make sure it's a slow one. Jarring shots are hard to look at and even harder to edit later. "Shooting a live event can make you anxious to get shots of everything," he said. "Keep one eye on the viewfinder and the other on the action going on around you

and strategically move the camera when necessary." "Use the rule of thirds," said Long. "Think of the picture in the frame consisting of a top third, a center third and a bottom third – the important stuff needs to happen in the middle third." Get shots of the event from different angles, recommended Roddy. He suggested families use multiple cameras if possible. Because simple video editing software is available for most computers, it can be fairly easy to edit the two videos together. And while you're capturing the day's events for posterity, don't forget to take the time to enjoy the celebration.

Considering college? Overcome common obstacles to becoming something great (ARA) - Whether you are fresh out of high school, hoping to start college for the first time or thinking about returning to college, it's not a decision that can be taken lightly. The time and money that goes into furthering your education can be daunting. However, since earning a college degree will ultimately lead you to achieve a more stable and rewarding future, you will likely not regret your decision to enroll and take your skills to the next level. Many prospective students face similar challenges when thinking about post-secondary education options. Ben Simms, vice president of admissions at Westwood College, identifies the five most common challenges he hears from students and how they overcome them. • Fear or lack of confidence

You may feel apprehensive because your past school experiences haven't been positive. If you can identify why you haven't succeeded in the past and identify what style of learning fits you best, you'll be in a better position to succeed and feel more confident in college. For example, if you've had a hard time in a traditional classroom setting, but excel at handson learning, look for colleges that offer that type of training. In fact, nearly half of all new Westwood College students have attended other colleges and universities prior to enrollment, and many are looking for a more hands-on education. • Lack of support For some, family or friends may not value education enough to provide the proper support for the person heading to college. If you find yourself in

this position, look for a college that offers a support system through counseling resources, free tutoring and mechanisms to network with teachers and classmates. • Worried about paying for college Many people entering college have little or no money saved to help pay for tuition or books. For these students this means taking out loans to help pay for their education. Before you enroll, sit down with a financial adviser or a professional at the college you want to attend to make sure you understand all of your financial obligations as well as your finance options. Knowing what your monthly payments might look like once you have earned your degree may help give you peace of mind going forward. Also, check with your college to see if you might be eligible for grants or scholarships. • Uncertain the investment will match the return Many prospective students often wonder whether their hard work and money spent on college will pay off after graduation in the form of a well-paying, enjoyable job. When looking for colleges, make sure to identify an institution that is committed to helping students find employ-

ment once they graduate to add assurance to your investment. Also know that the first job after college may not include a high salary but over time an individual's salary can increase significantly. • Balancing college with life's other obligations College is a major commitment for everyone, especially those who have family or work commitments while attending. There's no question that finding and maintaining a life balance is challenging, but many students find a way to get it done - whether it be through flexible scheduling or by taking some courses online. Araceli Hurtado, a featured Westwood 100

graduate, can relate to many of these challenges, and then some. When Hurtado chose to pursue a criminal justice degree, she was already working a fulltime job as an office manager in the restaurant industry. She wanted to pursue a career she enjoyed and could be proud of, but needed a program that would provide the flexibility to work and attend classes simultaneously. "Achieving a personal goal of earning a degree takes true commitment, no matter what obstacles life throws in front of you," she says. "I am grateful for the support that I received from my instructors and friends and am proud of what I

have been able to accomplish by making education a priority in my life." After earning her degree, Hurtado got a job working in a violence prevention agency and is doing what she loves. She was showcased in a February 2010 New York Times article for outstanding work in the community. Her advice for current students as well as anyone thinking about pursuing a degree is to establish solid, lasting relationships with instructors and classmates and get involved in as many networking opportunities as possible. She credits networking as the key to her success during and after her time in college.
