How to Make the Most of the End of Summer

August 4, 2022

Despite this season coming to a close, there are still many ways to make your summer well-spent. Here are some ideas on how to end summer on a positive note and get motivated for the year ahead.



Supporting Community Events

Summertime is one of the most popular seasons for communities to host public events. From concerts to festivals, community events are often free and can be a great way to enjoy the last few days of summer.


Another great reason to attend these events is because you’ll also be directly supporting your community! Oftentimes community events attract visitors and generate interest for small businesses.


MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) is a proud sponsor of many community events. You can check out our community events calendar by visiting Here you’ll see a variety of events that are happening in our various communities this summer. A few include Friday night concerts in the park, farmers markets at the capitol, and even a relay race raising funds for the American Cancer Society.


Post-Summer Planning

Another great way to end the summer is by planning for the year ahead. Using your free time now can help you prepare and become motivated for all that comes with the post-summer season.


An excellent way to start planning is by taking a look at your finances. This could include evaluating your current spending to create new financial goals for the upcoming year. You could even make a plan on how to achieve these goals by setting a new budget or brainstorming ways you can save money.


If you want to go a step further in preparing your finances, finding opportunities to become more financially literate is a great idea. Many financial institutions provide guided videos, advisors, classes, and seminars available to teach you more about finances. Just make sure you are getting your information from reliable sources.

MSUFCU has a series of financial seminars and events available to educate you throughout the upcoming year. You can view a list of all our events on the Financial Education tab of our events page.
