Look Out for the New Financial Fitness

If you were a member of some clubs or organizations on campus, you may have had a run into the DePaul Financial Fitness Program​. The premise of this program is that an employee of the program would visit and provide tips and guidance on important financial undertakings like off-campus housing or financing your education.

I am proud to announce that have begun a new position of on-campus employment as a Peer Financial Advisor under the Financial Fitness Program. With the generosity of a donor, I am part of new specialty team aimed at taking the program into new territory. The new program hopes to expand outside class presentations and perhaps dive into one-on-one advising sessions. After my time as a Financial Coach at the Center for Economic Progress over the last summer, I was excited to see that kind of program make its way into DePaul.

The program is still being developed, but I am hoping that undergrads will soon be able to seek guidance from an advisor soon. I understand that college is not cheap, especially if you’re financing your education yourself. Things happen in life unexpectedly, and if you’re feeling stressed or simply need advice, I hope the new Financial Fitness Program will be a valuable resource at your disposal. I will provide updates on details when I attain them, but for now expect help on a topics such as credit building, student debt, loans, and applying for financial aid.
