Last May, a finance class at Western Carolina University took a survey of several hundred students to test their financial literacy and over 80 percent of the students failed. This is a problem that has continued to increase, causing The Office of Financial Aid at Western Carolina to begin working with students and professors in efforts to raise awareness of financial illiteracy on campus.
