Campus Federal Credit Union helps LSU students get financial footing

A recent survey by Capital One Bank revealed that "nearly half of all high school seniors polled say they are unsure or uncertain about their ability to manage their banking and personal finances." This is quite alarming considering the fact that they will likely be handling college and personal finances on their own in just a few short months. Pair this with the increased likelihood that students are vulnerable to unscrupulous credit card deals and identity theft, and it is clear that a high level of protection is greatly needed.

For this reason, most colleges have their own credit union, which offers credit cards to students at much lower interest rates, plus other services to help guide and protect students in their financial dealings. One such credit union for college students is Campus Federal Credit Union, which is available to students, alumni and employees of the Louisiana State University system, as well as their family members. Membership is also available to residents in areas of Baton Rouge, Shreveport, and New Orleans.
