Mind on Your Money? Us Too.

Let's be real: While money isn't everything in life, it certainly is something. Money is what we use to survive in this world. We use it to eat, buy gas, pay rent, see a movie and visit the ER. But our supply of money isn't limitless. We must be wise and manage what we have earned.

The Money Gurus

Just like there are experts who help you manage your health (doctors) or file your taxes (accountants), there are experts who help you manage your money. They are called financial advisors or counselors. They can help you raise your credit score, lower your debt or set a budget.

Sounds nice? We think so too. Especially for DCCCD students who can get financial advice free of charge.
