8 Financial Tips for College Freshmen

[EASTON, MD] — For many young adults, college is the first time they are in control of the majority of their finances. As freshmen across the country embark on their first semester, Shore United Bank has highlighted eight tips to help ease their transition to financial independence.

“Striking the balance between spending and saving can be particularly hard when you are focused on everything else that comes with college life, but it is important to keep a close watch on your spending habits from day one,” said Laura Heikes, SVP Community & Government Relations Officer. “There’s no better time than the first year of college to establish good money habits and take control of your financial future.”

Shore United Bank offers the following tips to help ease the transition to financial independence for college freshmen.

  1. Create a budget. Take some time to figure out your income and set your goals, factoring in recurring expenses that must be paid (like tuition, books, and car insurance), some of your “wants” (like concert tickets and other recreational activities), and savings for emergencies. Shore United Bank offers services that will help you keep track of your money – and stay on track of your goals.
  2. Track your spending. Create a spreadsheet or download an app to see where your money is going each month. Mapping out your spending habits can help you identify where you might want to make adjustments.
  3. Save a little each month. Save your spare change and deposit it into your bank account at the end of each month. Increase the amount by $5 each month or quarter. This is an easy and manageable way to establish good financial habits that “Future You” will appreciate.
  4. Open an interest-bearing account. Stash some of your high school graduation money in an account that earns interest for doing nothing. When you open a certificate of deposit (CD), for example, you will earn interest in exchange for agreeing to leave your money alone for a specific period of time. Plan it right, and you can have CDs mature right as you need them each semester to help pay for tuition and expenses.
  5. Utilize campus resources. Universities today offer plenty of amenities to students for little-to-no cost. Take advantage of benefits such as free access to the campus rec center and shuttles that take you to off-campus locations.
  6. Take advantage of student discounts. When you want to take a break from the campus dining halls, or feel the urge to treat yourself, try looking for places that offer student discounts. Most discounts typically range from 10 to 15 percent and will accept your campus ID as verification.
  7. Build credit wisely. Look into applying for a student credit card that you can use for small purchases that you are able to pay off in full each month, like a music streaming subscription. If you don’t have your own source of income or are not comfortable handling the responsibility of credit alone, ask your parents to add you as an authorized user for one of their credit cards to establish a history of credit.
  8. Ask questions. Just like in the classroom, this is a learning experience. If you need help or are curious about a financial issue, ask trusted resources like your parents or your bank.

In this four-day workshop, led by retired Virginia Military Institute professor Grigg Mullen, participants will have the opportunity to hone their woodworking skills while constructing their very own 19th century-style sea chest.

Jayme D. Plays the OCC

Oxford, MD – The Oxford Community Center welcomes local vocalist Jayme D. accompanied by keyboardist, Chris Dingler from Johnny Bling to play Friday, October 11th from 7:00 – 9:00 PM. Jayme’s voice is described as deeply soulful and powerful. She mixes singer/songwriter vibes with inspiration pulled from New Orleans or Chicago Blues scenes. She is mesmerizing and a delight to watch perform in person. Executive Director Liza Ledford sat down with the talented singer and shares the following interview:

LL: How did you get started? Or how did you first discover that your voice was amazing?


JD: I have been singing ever since I can remember.  Apparently, in elementary school, I wasn’t the greatest.  I vividly remember one of my classmates telling me I sounded like a dying cat!  I’m glad that didn’t let that deter me!  For our 6th grade talent show, I was supposed to sing a song with two friends, who got cold feet at the last minute.  I decided to push forward and do the song by myself.  I remember finishing the song, and hearing the applause, and thinking, “This is what I want to do for the rest of my life.”  I have yet to consider my own voice amazing, but it has been incredible to see how it has evolved over time.  As I have grown and changed, grown more confident, and experienced the ups and downs of life, it is really neat to hear how my voice has somehow absorbed all that and changed to reflect it.  I feel like now I have finally found my sound.


LL: What musicians inspire you most?


JD: That’s a great question, and the answer is ever-changing, although there are a few staples that will always be favorites.  I have always loved Indigo Girls – I love the sound of their voices together, but it’s their lyrics that really speak to me.  Every song is a beautiful poem.  Sting – I love his innovation and how he plays with genres and time signatures, but still manages to make music that has mainstream popularity.  Stevie Wonder – especially the songs with the intricate horn parts… so good.  I’m really into Chris Stapleton right now… his voice is so soulful, and combined with his wife’s pure voice on harmonies, the simplest songs just give me goose bumps .  Eva Cassidy – she had such soul and such control of her voice and could sing any genre and make it sound incredible.  There’s a musician I actually went to school with named Gabe Dixon.  He’s probably my favorite songwriter, and has become one of my all-time favorite musicians.  We were so fortunate that he was finishing up a tour in Baltimore the night before our wedding, and made a detour to come and perform at our reception.  He’s now touring with Tedeschi Trucks Band as their piano player.  I could keep naming people, but I wouldn’t get anything else done today!


LL: How would you describe the show coming to the OCC?


JD: It’s going to be a mix of original songs that I have written over the years and some of my favorite cover songs.  My husband (Chris Dingler from Johnny Bling) will be joining me on keys, and it will be a mix of different styles and genres.  I am really looking forward to it!


Join us Friday, October 11th at 7:00 p.m. for a $10 ticket price. Supporting local talent is part of OCC’s mission and we can’t do it without you and funds in part by the Talbot County Arts Council with funds from Talbot County Council and Maryland State Arts Council and concert sponsors Kelly Distributors.


For more information, registration and tickets please contact the Oxford Community Center at 410-226-5904, or email  Sign up for OCC’s weekly e-newsletter for additional announcements and updates or like OCC’s Facebook page at Oxford Community Center, Inc. The OCC is always open online at

The club fee is $1200 for the season and $600 for practice players. Practices will begin in December with the season ending in March.


According to Executive Club Director Trina Leclerc Premier Volleyball is an youth sports organization that provides volleyball training through various avenues.  This includes both club (travel) teams (ages 12-18s) for girls and boys  that form in mid-November, practice and compete through June in regional and national tournaments which range from one to four day tournaments.  The organization also offers various fundamental skill training opportunities for age 5-18s throughout the year in the form of camps, clinics, open gyms and private sessions.  Premier Volleyball is primarily a USA Volleyball club but does participate in tournaments affiliated with some volleyball associations.

Leclerc said the organization was started in 2014 in New Castle County, DE to bring together a small group of people that shared a passion for volleyball but has grown by leaps and bounds. “The initial goal was to have four club teams but that quickly turned into 11 teams in the first year and by the fifth we had 33 teams,” said Leclerc. Last year, Premier Volleyball had two teams in Easton, MD and they are excited to expand their footprint on to the Kent Island Area that does not currently have a local league. “We are beyond excited to join Easton and Kent Island to create the Chesapeake Select Division,” Leclerc said adding that the club is planning at least five teams teams in this division area from ages 14-18s.

What’s Cooking with Melissa?

I love recipes that can be served anytime. This week’s recipe for Apple Custard Squares  can be served for breakfast, snack or dessert.  


Apple Custard Squares


1/2 cup sugar (I use raw sugar)

1/2 cup all purpose flour or gluten free 1 to 1 flour works perfectly

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp. salt

1 1/4 cups milk

4 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla extract

3 medium size apples, sliced very, very thin (use a softer apple like gala to ensure being thoroughly cooked)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line an 8×8 glass baking dish with parchment paper. Spray parchment paper with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl whisk together sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Next whisk in half of the milk until smooth then continue to whisk in remaining milk. Next whisk the 4 eggs into the mixture. Whisk thoroughly until completely mixed and smooth. With a large spoon or spatula mix in apple slices then pour into prepared dish. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Bake until middle is no longer jiggly. After removing from oven, pull out using parchment paper and place on a plate to completely cool. Cover and refrigerate. Serve cold.

*Can be served with whipped cream for dessert.

**I like to sprinkle with the cinnamon/sugar shaker before baking.

Talbot Community Connections Board Honors William Banks

Talbot Community Connections recently honored longtime board member William Banks for his 17 years of service on the board. Banks, who is now an Emeritus Board Member, was involved with the years of the Board.  He was presented with a proclamation from the Maryland Senate.

“Bill Banks has been such a positive energy on our board. We wanted to honor him as an Emeritus Board Member as he played such a vital role in helping to establish our Children’s Advocacy Center and building awareness about our organization in the community,” notes Amy Steward, President, Talbot Community Connections.

Talbot Community Connections (TCC), an eleven-member volunteer board, was formed to raise funds to enhance the Talbot County Department of Social Services’ (TCDSS) capacity to respond directly to problems of safety and well-being of county citizens. The funds raised provide help to abused children through the Talbot County Children’s Advocacy Center (TCCAC), families in crisis, the unemployed and working poor, and disabled and frail elderly. TCC awards provided funds for respite care, prevention of evictions and utility disconnects, therapeutic activities for children with disabilities in foster care, housing fuel, transportation, and a fatherhood program. TCC funds are able to help individuals stay in the community, families stay united and families stay in their homes. In 2018, TCC donated $29,400 to support the Talbot County Department of Social Services and the Talbot County Children’s Advocacy Center.

Fluharty named Director of Critical Care and Emergency Services at UM Shore Regional Health

In this new role, Fluharty leads the nursing team in emergency care at UM Shore Medical Centers at Easton and Dorchester, as well as Easton’s ICU and Telemetry unit, and coordinates other nursing areas, including the traveling nurse program.

Fluharty began with UM Shore Regional Health as a collegiate nurse and her first official position with UM SRH was as an Emergency Department nurse in 2009, a position she held until 2016.
