The Green Room is a Berklee alumni networking event that attracts young alumni who are new to town and established alumni looking to connect with their friends. The event in September 2015 saw 130 attendees come through the door. It's the alumni event to attend if you're looking to chat, mix, and mingle with Berklee's LA community.

Appetizers will be passed from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., and alumni will receive one free drink ticket. 

Valet parking ($8) and nearby public parking ($8–$10) is available.

You're trying to save money, so you cut out that daily latte you love so much. Right? Wrong. Learn how to live within your means while spending on what matters most to you.

Takeaways:
  • A better understanding of your priorities
  • A deeper insight into what you’re currently spending 
  • Techniques for helping to make spending jibe with what you value
  • Behavioral strategies for becoming more aware of your spending habits
  • A whole different way of looking at your money

"Can I Have Your Number?:" Understanding your credit score...and why it matters.

Steve Heck Room
1140 Boylston Street
Boston
MA
United States
02215

It’s not a pick-up line. No matter what kinds of grownup stuff you try to do—apply for a job, buy a car, take out a small business loan—chances are someone is going to take a look at your credit score. And what they see could mean the difference between "yes" and "no".                                                                                                 

 

Even if you don’t know your credit score, it could be helping or hurting your attempts to reach your grownup goals. In this class, you'll get an overview of different types of debt, as well as a good look at credit scores, credit reports, and why you should care about them (hint: they're extremely important). You'll also learn about free tools and resources to help you manage your credit and debt.

Takeaways:
  • Understand credit scores and reports, including the biggest factors that influence your score.
  • Get tips for understanding different types of debt.
  • Leave with a list of free resources to help you keep tabs on your credit.

Please RSVP using our online Google Form. Space is limited, so please RSVP as soon as you can!
