James Hubbard of Wabbaseka is one of three University of Arkansas at Little Rock students who took second place at the annual Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) regional meeting at Dallas.


At the “Best Practices” competition Feb. 23, the students made a presentation about UA Little Rock’s “Reality Fair” financial literacy workshop.


“For the Reality Fair workshop, we let participants choose their career and family goals, and make housing, transportation, communication, entertainment, giving, and saving decisions,” said Cynthia Johnson, accounting instructor and Beta Alpha Psi faculty co-advisor. “They then spin the ‘wheel of life’ to see what random event, representing real life happens to them. If they are not living within their budget, they must go back and change earlier decisions until they can live within their means. It’s quite an eye-opener!”
