College students learn how to become homebuyers

March 09, 2009 07:09PM

Wagner College has teamed up with the Neighborhood Housing Services of Staten Island to teach students the basics of home buying. The students will learn about credit scores, budgeting and saving money for a home purchase, making offers and homeowners insurance. NHS will also hold a foreclosure prevention forum with Wagner College in April. “Nobody teaches you those things, especially not the credit card companies, so if it’s something you can learn in the classroom, all the better,” college junior Viana Cangelosi told NY1.
