Spartan Villa Is NOW AVAILABLE
Classes are back in session and students are moving back into town—maybe right into your house! Can you manage a household, an active social life, and keep your financial situation in the green? Welcome to Spartan Villa!
Spartan Villa is a fun-filled, strategy game where you manage the ultimate college house by building awesome rooms, attracting the best tenants, and manage your finances to pay for it all.
Paying bills on time, allocating funds to the proper accounts, and monitoring your monthly spending are important aspects of the gameplay. Ultimately, this allows you to purchase rooms to expand your house, host social events to attract future tenants, and increase your overall credit score.
By successfully completing these tasks, you'll learn effective money management skills and increase your financial literacy in a way that is engaging, and is also accessible to a younger audience.

Saving Magic Is Here!
Climb tower walls, battle dragons, and save magic. Saving Magic is a family-friendly, free gaming app that combines fun and financial education for MSUFCU's youth members. Watch the trailer for a live example of the game!
In this app, players must complete different levels in each world to obtain magic coins. Once the players have earned enough magic coins they can withdraw them from their bank accounts and purchase clothing, lives, and spells for their characters, which will help in future levels and worlds.
Players will need to spend and save wisely to successfully beat the game. Remember, the more coins that are deposited into the player's bank account, the more interest is earned on the money. This encourages players to save and have more money in their bank accounts.
Saving Magic not only promotes good financial habits with savings tips included in each level, it also teaches players how to budget and manage their resources.
Download it today, and start saving magic!
Saving Magic is available for iOS in the Apple iTunes App Store and for Android™ in the Google Play™ store.
