Seton Hall students are all familiar with the sight of blue, and most would like to see a little more green in their bank accounts. This month Popmoney is coming to campus with the goal of making Seton Hall a little more orange.
Popmoney is a website and mobile app that allows users to send payments and receive money with the click of a button anytime, anywhere.
“Popmoney is basically like a virtual wallet,” said senior Jennifer Crowe. “Instead of fumbling around looking for your wallet, you can just pop out your cell phone.”
Popmoney is also offered at over 2000 banks and credit unions nationwide.
In order to give students a better idea of what Popmoney is all about, some events will be cosponsored by the University’s PNC throughout the month.
Popmoney events will kick off Feb. 11 by covering campus with orange balloons to represent upcoming activities. The events will continue on Feb. 18 when Popmoney will partner with PNC at a table offering free cake pops to students who have downloaded the app. On Feb. 20 Popmoney will host a men’s basketball game takeover providing students with another opportunity to become aquainted with Popmoney’s benefits.
On Feb. 13th in room 124 of Fahy Hall certified public accountant and award winning business attorney, Daniel Crowe, will be a guest speaker discussing how Seton Hall students can be savvy with their finances using Popmoney.
“It is important to stress the issue of being smart with money to students,” Crowe said. “Students will be able to embark on a new digital journey by having the chance to learn about Popmoney and digital banking.”
The team will also challenge students to find them in their Popmoney shirts on Feb. 25. The first three students will recieve a prize if they show they’ve downloaded the app.
The Popmoney campaign will also include a partnership with Dunkin Donuts. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
