By Northern Star staff

The Department of Economics will hold The Cost of Convenience 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesday in New Hall, Swing Space.

The seminar will evaluate the true cost of credit cards, payday loans and other fast cash methods. Presenters will include attorney Thomas Springer of Springer Brown, LLC, U.S. Judge Janet Baer and students.

“The exciting this about this particular year is we have input from the Economic Student Association,” said Judith Dymond, coordinator for the Center for Economic Education. “I think it is going to be a dynamite presentation.“

This event is free and open to the public. Contact Dymond at jdymond@niu.edu for more information.
