When East Carolina University dismissed for the semester on April 28, 2015, 500 students left campus $100,000 richer.
What did these undergrads have in common?
All 500 had completed a personal finance class helmed by Mark Weitzel, Bill Pratt and Len Rhodes—a.k.a. “The Money Professors.”
For the past five years, the trio has challenged their students to collectively squirrel away $100K over the course of a single semester—and most years, students surpass the challenge.
