  • Welcome to campus!

    You’re about to enter the world of college decision-making at $ave University, where every decision you make affects your time and money. Get ready to shop, spend, study, and do laundry. Watch out for the campus distractions. Keep your eyes open and make smart choices. There are opportunity costs around every corner!

    Note to parents, educators, and volunteers: This Junior Achievement $ave, USA module is designed using 8 bit graphics, reminiscent of old video games. It is designed to be fun and full of distractions. This experience, designed for high school students, allows students to practice weighing opportunity costs, the economic term referring to the next best alternative given up when a choice is made. It is designed to work best on computers and tablets.
