Hi my name is Terry and I am the Mac’s Money Centre (MMC) coach. I am here to support you in your financial journey during your university years and beyond. I know that money matters can be very daunting for most of us.
I am happy to say that I have been working with McMaster students for the past five years and have developed a good understanding of the common concerns students have with money. University is usually a time when students begin to develop financial independence with many students living away from home for the first time. It is important to have a strong start to make sure you are spending within your budget and meeting your financial responsibilities.
Between tuition and textbooks, groceries and basic living, plus having enough money left to enjoy life, it is no surprise to me that money has become the number two stressor for students. Talking about it and taking advantage of our services is one of the best things you can do to overcome that stress and empower yourself.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you with whatever you need.
Terry Bennett, BSW, AFCC
