The UVM Department of Community Development and Applied Economics (CDAE) and the Vermont Attorney General’s Consumer Assistance Program (CAP) are pleased to announce the launch of the Catamount Life Skills series. This engaging educational series will help UVM students learn about important life skills to successfully thrive in Burlington and beyond.

Topics will include avoiding housing scams, navigating renting in Vermont, student loans, taxes, how to build credit, and how to network. The Catamount Life Skills Series is made possible by a collaboration between CDAE and CAP.

The next event is entitled, Student Loans: Private vs. Federal. Students are invited to join Assistant Attorney General (AAG) Merideth Chaudoir to talk through both federal and private student loans. Students will get information about how to navigate student loans, review repayment plan toolkits, and discuss various materials and programs available to borrowers.
