RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper has launched a campaign designed to help college students become smarter consumers.

Cooper’s tour includes visits to six North Carolina colleges and universities.

During a stop at High Point University, Cooper encouraged students to educate themselves about student loans, credit and debit cards, and the risk of identity theft. He said the financial decisions that students make today can impact their future, and that taking the time to learn how to be a smarter consumer now will pay off for years to come.

The College Cash & Credit Tour is also scheduled to stop at Queens University in Charlotte, Shaw University in Raleigh, East Carolina University in Greenville, the University of North Carolina at Pembroke, and Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington.
