Since the Pennsylvania State Employee Credit Union’s (PSECU) Financial Education Center at Millersville University (MU) opened in 2001, they have moved a few times around campus searching for the perfect location. With their most recent move, they may have found it. The center has migrated next to the Juice Bar in the Student Memorial Center (SMC), allowing for an exceptionally open and engaging space.

Lined with glass panels and Edison-style lightbulbs, the new office provides a contemporary and inviting feel for visitors. To the right, there is an area with a student work center and three monitors for PSECU members to utilize. To the left, there is a lounge-area with a television, brochure station and seating.

“Our new location offers more space for interactive activities such as financial education lessons with individual students and even clubs,” said Financial Education Center manager Kristyne Schonhaut.

PSECU aims to help students and members look at the big picture of financial stability. They believe in giving members the “best value” they can, and the hope is that this new space aids in that mission.

“There’s a perception out there from students that they may be nervous or scared to come in and we don’t want them to feel that way. This is a space for them if they have any questions. Ultimately, our goal is to teach them,” said Schonhaut.

A relocation celebration for the new space will be held on Wednesday, September 12 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the SMC Atrium. The celebration will include food, interactive games and prizes. The celebration will end with a donation to the Campus Cupboard. All attendees should bring their MU ID to swipe at the event, as every swipe results in an increased donation to the Campus Cupboard.
