Athens, Ga. – The fifth annual FHCE Showcase Week, set for Jan. 29-Feb. 2, will give current and prospective students the chance to meet employers and learn more about the opportunities available within the financial planning, housing and consumer economics fields.

“We have a full week of events planned to showcase opportunities for students majoring in consumer economics, housing management and policy, consumer journalism and financial planning,” FHCE department head Sheri Worthy said. “Students will have opportunities to learn about our Double Dawgs programs, sit in on classes, network with employers at our internship/career fair and interact with FHCE faculty.”

Among the highlights of the week is a Double Dawgs information session on Jan. 31, where interested students can learn about the 17 Double Dawgs programs within FHCE.

The department also is offering open classes throughout the week for students who are interested in learning more about the course offerings available. For a full schedule, click here.

The Financial Planning Banquet, set for Feb. 1, is an annual event where students, alumni, faculty, employers and supporters of UGA’s financial planning program have the opportunity to network and celebrate successes.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Sarah Stanley Fallaw, Ph.D., founder and President of Data Points.

She is continuing the study of wealth in America started by Thomas J. Stanley, Ph.D., author of The Millionaire Next Door, using analytics to identify and develop wealth potential.
