Importance of Being Financially Fit

The statistic above says it all. Not understanding money can cause unnecessary stress in our life. As a college student we have enough stress as it is. We can avoid a large amount of this stress by taking control of our finances and knowing what options are open to us. The Financial Coaching Program can help with this through peer mentoring.

Peer-to-Peer Mentoring 

Our program has fellow UWSP students that have gone through financial training and are willing to talk to you one-on-one about how they can help you achieve your financial goals. They will also be happy to explain everything from how credit works to how to avoid banking fees. Our mentors want to show how you can control your financial future.

Controlling Your Financial Future 

Having an understanding of finance can be the difference between not getting a loan and being able to buy the home of your dreams. It can be the difference between being able to get a car and having to bike everywhere. It can especially be the difference between having money for an emergency and having to sell your possessions to get by. Take control of your financial future and avoid the stress!
